    Want ENGAGING resources to teach volcanoes?! This Volcano Bundle includes ALL my volcano resources, with an included Student Workbook! The workbook is a compilation of all the student pages. It's a LIFE SAVER. Here is an overview of the AMAZING resources found in this Volcano Bundle!


    Need something to pique your student's interest in volcanoes? This 18-slide PPT delivers ALL the basics on volcanoes: how volcanoes form, types of volcanoes, where they form, type of magma and eruption. Content includes discussion of silica rich vs silica poor. LOTS of pictures in presentation.

    Vocab words included in presentation include: plate boundaries, subduction, hot spot, volcano, vent, crater, silica, basaltic magma, granitic magma, andesitic magma, rhyolitic magma, shield volcano, cinder cone volcano, stratovolcano (composite), caldera, tephra, water vapor, gases, viscous, explosive eruption, quiet eruption

    4-page student note packet includes fill-in-the-blanks that correlates exactly with PPT.

    Types of Volcanoes - Worksheets that Compare Volcano Types

    Need to pare down information on types of volcanoes? These worksheets offer a short, concise explanation on each type of volcano: where they form, type of magma, silica rich vs poor, and type of eruption. More than just TELLING students these facts, it is explained HOW they relate to one another. WHY does a stratovolcano have more silica than a shield volcano? HOW does amount of silica relate to eruption? HOW does eruption determine the shape of the volcano?

    Students will then fill in a chart summarizing the differences between these three volcano types: shield, cinder cone, and stratovolcano.

    A third handout is provided on the Ring of Fire. All 3 handouts contain black and white images for coloring for those doodlers in your class.

    Types of Volcanoes - Activity for Comparing Volcano Types

    Want an interactive, ENGAGING activity to compare types of volcanoes? In this volcano activity, students will color, cut, build, and compare the 3 volcano types! DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. There are multiple templates. Choose the base best for YOUR population of students. Maybe use the blank base as a method for taking notes? Or send home the one with ALL the information. This activity for volcanoes is adaptable for any classroom.

    Once the 3 types of volcanoes are built, use the included handout to simply check boxes as your students compare the locations, magma type, eruption type, and shape of each of the 3 types of volcanoes. MORE THAN A WORKSHEET.

    Last year when I used this, I took a whole class period to create and give notes on each volcano type. On the 4th day, I had students take out ALL THREE of their volcanoes, line them up, and analyze their differences using the simple check box activity.

    Answer key included for handout.

    Teacher directions included, with photos.

    Volcano Research Project

    This resource includes directions and rubric for a volcano research project. Allow students the opportunity to research and present information pertaining to one specific volcano (and hear about others from their classmates). A list of volcanoes is provided (that are all easily researched, understood, and interesting), as well as a list of SPECIFIC facts students should research about each. Students choose a format to present: either a PowerPoint Presentation, trifold brochure, or poster. The rubric is out of 66 points and provides room for neatness and presentation ability. Use in class, or as a long term (I would allow 2 weeks for middle school) at home research project.

    Intrusive Igneous Formations

    Need engaging resources for volcanoes and intrusive igneous formations?! These color and label worksheets are perfect! These worksheets were created for use in a volcano unit in a middle school classroom. The following intrusive igneous formations are included: batholith, xenolith, laccolith, dike, sill, pluton, magma chamber, and parasitic cone.

    I always found these difficult to teach because there is little application, just knowledge level content. With this resource, students will first color the labeled diagram and write their own description for the formations. On the second worksheet, students will read the actual definition, find the structure on the previous handout, coordinate it with a different diagram, and color according to instruction. As elementary as coloring is, science shows us that it does in fact help us to learn new material.

    Volcano Task Cards

    Need an engaging review for volcanoes? These 20 volcano task cards correlate perfectly with the content provided in my Volcano Bundle. These task cards get students up out of their seats, moving around the room, for something OTHER than a worksheet! Review includes: types of volcanoes, types of magma, location, types of eruptions, shapes of volcanoes, silica rich vs poor, types of lava flows. and intrusive igneous formations.

    Volcano Assessment

    This volcano test was created as a final assessment supplementary to my volcano unit.

    This test is most appropriate for grades 7 and 8. If used in grade 6, I would remove the final essay question. I was unable to make the test editable, as it does use copyrighted clip art, and that would violate terms of use. Thank you for understanding. Answer key is provided.

    My Volcano Unit with student workbook, along with ALL my other Earth Science Units with student workbooks, can be found in my Earth Science Curriculum.

    Thanks for checking it out!
