Our Earthquakes and Volcanoes lesson plan explores the causes and effects of volcanoes and earthquakes. During this lesson, students are asked to color in and label a diagram of an erupting volcano, reinforcing the application of basic earthquake and volcano vocabulary in a fun and interactive way. Students are also asked to identify whether lesson vocabulary words are related to volcanoes or earthquakes and then define them, testing their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and identify causes and effects of volcanos and earthquakes.
