Volcano Activity Learning Groups

For this activity you will work in a group of up to four students. Each group will
create a poster showing the parts of a volcano. When you have completed all of
the steps below, use the attached rubric to self-assess your group’s work.

Use Encarta or the Internet to discover what each of your volcano vocabulary
words means and where on a volcano it is located.

2. Using a sheet of poster board and class art supplies, draw a volcano and
clearly label each part. You may also use any art materials to add interest to
your poster.

3. Word process a one page report using your volcano vocabulary that
explains what happens when a volcano erupts.

4. Turn in your research, poster, and report at the Science Center when you
are finished.
