Who doesn’t want to see a volcano explode? Students are unaware that seismic activity is occurring all over the world at this very moment. This article provides websites where these events are occurring presently and historically. There are excellent lesson plans for middle school students and in some cases videos are available. Linked to the National Standards, understanding of the Earths dynamic motion is important and interesting for students.

While the article is a great deal of information and websites, the age of the article would indicate that several of the web addresses are no longer viable. Maybe a Google Search can find similar or new links.
