Why It Matters
Is there a volcano erupting right now?
Check out these live webcams:
Which volcanoes are displaying images? Are any of them showing visible volcanic activity right now?
- From the volcano webcams featured on NOAA’s website, identify their locations on a world map.
- Pick five of the volcanoes and do some further research on them. Collect information about:
- The type of volcano
- The type of eruptions
- The stage (active, dormant, extinct)
- Once your data is collected, compile on an interactive map with your classmates (use a Prezi or GIS program).
