Volcanoes can be fascinating, but also deadly, and are capable of producing highly destructive hazards.
Students will examine and describe different volcanic rocks and deposits. They will link these to specific volcanic hazards and plate tectonic boundaries. Using this knowledge students will be able to explore the characteristics of shield and composite volcanoes and understand their impacts on humans.
