World Volcanoes

The resource below includes twelve photos of volcanoes around the world. They can be used as part of your 'Volcanoes' topic in lots of different ways in the classroom:

  • Print the pictures and use them on your classroom displays.
  • Give one of the photos and ask them to find out lots of information about that particular volcano.
  • Look at all twelve images and identify their location on a map.
  • Challenge children to find images / information about other volcanoes around the world.
  • Discuss what the pupils can see in each picture. How are the volcanoes similar / different?
  • Use the pictures as the starting point for some Literacy activities... what words would you use to describe that location? Could you use it as the setting for a story?
  • Challenge your children to create their own artwork based on the photos. What different materials could they use?
  • Imagine what it would be like to live near to the volcano. How would it be similar / different to your own life?
  • Describe the volcanoes using geographical terms.
