Locating the world's famous volcanoes - KS2

This lesson is designed for KS2 children. It can be taught as a stand alone lesson but is also available as part a unit called Volcanoes which is available on TES.

First the presentation introduces some of the world’s most famous volcanoes and classes them as active, dormant or extinct.

The activity then challenges children to locate volcanoes using an atlas or the internet (e.g. Google maps). Alternatively, a map of famous world volcanoes is also provided.

LA - Children locate volcanoes using the map of famous volcanoes (writing numbers)

MA - Children locate volcanoes using the map of famous volcanoes (writing volcano names)

UA - Children locate volcanoes using an atlas.

(N.B. It is recommended you check the atlas has the relevant maps prior doing the activity.)
