In this virtual experience, students will…
- Analyze the different types of volcanoes, including shield volcanoes, stratovolcanoes, and cinder cones, and identify their unique characteristics that result from their formation process.
- Evaluate the hazards associated with volcanic eruptions, such as lava flows, ash clouds, and pyroclastic flows, and assess their potential impact on the surrounding environment and communities.
- Investigate the processes that lead to volcanic eruptions, including magma movement and gas release, and explain the role of plate tectonics in the formation of volcanoes.
Volcanoes are geological formations that result from the movement of tectonic plates beneath the Earth’s surface, and they are one of the most remarkable natural phenomena on our planet. In this virtual experience, we will delve into the inner workings of volcanoes and discover what makes them such a powerful and awe-inspiring force.
You will have the opportunity to learn about the different types of volcanoes, including shield volcanoes, stratovolcanoes, and cinder cones, and how each type forms unique characteristics. You will also examine the processes that lead to volcanic eruptions and the various hazards associated with them, such as lava flows, ash clouds, and pyroclastic flows.
