World Around Us - Natural Disasters
I hope that you enjoyed learning about the different types of volcanoes last week. This week you will be making a PowerPoint on a volcano of your choice. If you do not have access to PowerPoint, you can use pieces of paper instead.
Lesson 7 – Choosing and researching a volcano
Last week you continued to look at three different types of volcanoes – shield, composite and cinder cone. You also took a closer look at the 1980 eruption of Mount St Helens. By now you should have a good idea of the different volcanoes that are scattered around our planet. In this lesson you are going to choose a volcano to research. You can find your own to research by looking online or you can choose one of the volcanoes mentioned in the ‘All About Volcanoes’ PowerPoint (slides 16-20). During this lesson you should research your chosen volcano and create a fact sheet using Word. Alternatively, it can be completed on a piece of paper. Different areas you should research, but are not limited to, are:
Step 1 – Choose a volcano to research. You can read slides 16-20 of the ‘All About Volcanoes’ PowerPoint to help you
Step 2 – Using Word or a piece of paper create a fact file on your chosen volcano. Use the questions above to help you
