Topic

Live Volcano Web Cameras

Student Exploration

Is there a volcano erupting right now?

Check out these live webcams:

http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/VAAC/cams.html

Which volcanoes are displaying images? Are any of them showing visible volcanic activity right now?

Extension Investigation

  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).
