This resource provides an additional reading on the types of volcanoes- shield, cinder cone, and stratovolcano- explaining where they occur, how they form, the type of magma involved, and how all these things contribute to their shape. A third student handout explains the ring of fire. This resource is more informational than it is "work." There is a table to fill in on the types of volcanoes, and two application questions on the ring of fire page. Answer key included.

My volcano bundle with student workbook will be coming out within the next week, and this resource will be included. Stay tuned!
