Volcanoes - Awesome Facts!

Earth Science: Plate Tectonics and Volcanoes

Mrs. Venessa Smith, B.Sc.
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(8)
In this 4-week class, students will learn about plate tectonics and how it is related to volcanoes, the three major types of volcanoes, and will build their own volcano to erupt.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 5
Learners will gain a greater understanding of the relationship between plate tectonics and volcanoes.  Learners will recognize volcanoes occur in patterns and bands on Earth's surface that are often along the boundaries between continents and oceans. Maps will help learners locate different features associated with different types of plate boundaries, such as volcanoes and mid-ocean ridges. 
My Bachelor's of Science degree in Geology, my professional experience working as a Geologist, and my 8 years of teaching science qualify me to teach topics covered in this class. 
Homework Offered
During Week 4 of the class, students will be building and erupting their own volcanoes. Each learner will build their own volcano. Learners will need to have their materials ready prior to our Week 4 class meeting so they are prepared to build their volcano when class starts.

For this class we will be using Pear Deck.  Pear Deck is an add-on tool that helps to make presentations more engaging and interactive.  Students will need to access the class Pear Deck presentation by visiting  From there, students will be asked to log in using a "join code" provided by me.  This ensures a safe and secure online learning environment because only students with the specific "join code" will be able to access the presentation.

Hello!  I'm Mrs. Smith.  I love teaching about science and gardening.  My favorite science to teach is Geology (the study of the Earth).  I really enjoy teaching classes about the Earth and all of the Earth processes like erosion, the rock cycle,...
