Students develop a safety plan for a village located near a volcano. Students must build a model volcano with the village and other key components to demonstrate the plan.
Students design a city around an active volcano. Students design and model a plan to protect the city in the event of an eruption.
Students study an actual volcano and build a small-scale model replica.
