Product Description
Dear Teacher,

I live on the east coast of the United States so my students often do not realize that the U.S. has many active volcanoes within its borders so I created this webquest for them – whether you live far away from volcanoes or nearby, your students can learn digital literacy and map reading skills as they build important background knowledge in earth science.

Knowledge-building Activities:

• Use the interactive and up-to-date map of the Volcano Hazards Program to research the location, volcano type and most recent activity of volcanoes within U.S. territories.

• Compare two maps to determine the tectonic plates and plate boundaries that create some of these volcanoes.

Skill-building Activities:

• Map reading and interpretation

• Navigate interactive websites to conduct research
