Volcano: Create a Labelled Diagram

(1)
A differentiated resource for producing a labelled diagram of a volcano. There are two main versions of this activity, but both of them require the information cards. These can be printed out and placed around the room. The first version is an all in one A4 sheet that has the diagram and labels that can be cut out and stuck on. This is better suited to lower ability students, they can find out where the parts are by looking at the information around the room. The second version requires the diagram with no labels. Students have to collect the information from around the room and write it on their diagram. I run this as a memory game, giving students two rules: they can only write on their diagram at their desk, and they cannot move the information sheets.

Volcano Poem Planning lesson

As part of our Y4 topic on natural disasters we looked at poetry and this was particularly looking at figurative language. This pack includes: Smart Notebook on the lesson including a starter, AfL activity, input for main activity then a page you might use on following day related to the other resources. Volcano worksheet (Publisher) with 2 versions, the harder version extends to personification. Worksheet based on a poem 'City Jungle' which asks the children to look for the key features using my thermometer system. Copies of the thermometer - I use this for self and peer assessment to see which of the features they have included in their work. (Thermometer is used as we go from cold to hot write). I used the main lesson for an observation which went well and the work was great quality.

In the first week, children will engage with the text through discussion, drama and even creating a parachute volcanic eruption in order to increase their familiarity with the story. They will have the opportunity to articulate ideas about the text using an increasingly varied vocabulary. There is a grammar focus on using powerful verbs and a chance to develop thesaurus skills. In the second week, pupils will plan their own story based on the structure of Escape from Pompeii and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final narrative. The literacy objectives covered in this unit are: To use sensory descriptions To use a thesaurus to improve my writing To perform a poem as a group To use powerful verbs To prepare a short drama piece based on a text To write a descriptive recount To make a story plan To write my own narrative To edit my writing To make decisions about how to present my writing The PDF file contains ten full lesson plans and all pupil worksheets/resources.

Whole lesson - the effects of a volcano

(0)
This lesson focuses on both the negative and the positive. It also introduces foundation groups to short / long term effects. The starter is a sorting activity. The students draw a table and add the effects to it. You'll need to discuss what immediate and long term effects are first. The next activity is some photo analysis (the photos are on a sheet at the back of the slideshow). I get the students to identify the effects, and also the features of a volcano where appropriate. The next activity focuses on the positive effects. Introduce the idea that volcanoes can have positive effects, and then ask the students to read each description, highlight the keywords and then draw a diagram to illustrate it (using the keywords). Afterwards - discuss what the positives are. Plenary - there is a game on 'If this is the answer...then what is the question' aimed at consolidating two points from the lesson and two which are about the features of a volcano. Overall this lesson has worked well - the activities are differentiated visibly. The learning journey is clear. There are a few photos to show them as well.

Volcanoes Workbook

This workbook and case sudies is designed to meet the majority of the requirements of the AQA Geography Entry Level - I think just the case study is missing. The tasks are short and designed for pupils with limited attention span and lower than age expected reading skills. Some of the work has been adapted from other worksheets available on TES to fit the spec and learning outcomes of Entry Level.
