  1. VOLCANOS!

  2. HOW THEY SHAPE THE LAND • Volcanoes create an almost infinite variety of landforms and terrain. However, geologists have noticed patterns when studying these different terrains, that allow them to group them into categories, based on how they are the same, and how they are different. These four landform types are called lava flows, volcanic peaks, calderas, and volcanic necks. http://www.kidsgeo.com/geology-for-kids/0054-volcanoes-landforms.php http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/volcanoes-videos/

  4. THE STORY OF POMPEII On August 24, 79AD, the busy hum of Pompeii was suddenly interrupted by an ear shattering explosion. • Vesuvius’s pool of lava was ripped apart, and hurled kilometers into the air. • People came running from their houses to see what all the noise was about. Those who lived at a safe distance saw a cloud shaped like a pine tree reaching high into the sky. This ‘cloud’ was actually millions of tons of ash and small, very hot stones held up in the air by the force of the explosion. Some of the cloud was blown away by the wind, and 20 kilometers away people had to take shelter. Many left their homes, fearing it was the end of the world. • Not all of them survived. http://www.curriculumsupport.education.nsw.gov.au/services/schoolmagazine/assets/pdf/pompeii_text_and_teaching_session_td2_2009.pdf
