Volcanoes webquest w/plate tectonics
Webquest on volcanoes using websites on the paper.

Students look up what a volcano is, how they are created, the main types of volcanoes, they do a simulation online with a volcano that lets them change how big the eruption will be.
They look up the power of a volcano when compare to a nuclear bomb.
It also introduces plate tectonics and their role in the formation of volcanoes.

Worked well in my 6th grade science classes. Time it took the students varied from 45min-70min
