  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

The U.S. has many active volcanoes within its borders – 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

NGSSMS-ESS2-2
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6–8 texts and topics.
