  1. From the volcano webcams featured on NOAA’s website, identify their locations on a world map.
  2. Pick five of the volcanoes and do some further research on them. Collect information about:
    1. The type of volcano
    2. The type of eruptions
    3. The stage (active, dormant, extinct)
Once your data is collected, compile on an interactive map with your classmates (use a Prezi or GIS program).
