Volcano – Create Your Own at Discovery Channel

Last week one of our Science teachers had their students working on a Volcano unit in the computer lab.  I was wondering if there was an interactive volcano online and of course there was at the Discovery Channel Volcano Explorer.

The Discovery Channel Volcano Explorer allows students and teachers to Explore a Virtual Volcano

You might want to start with having the students exploring whee on the world globe the most active volcano’s are located.

How do we identify volcano’s by type?

What does the cross section of a volcano look like?

And finally the most fun part, build your own volcano and watch it erupt with animation and sound!

The Discovery Channel Volcano Explorer would be well worth a visit, if you are studying volcano’s!
