Volcanic Teacher's Guide

Volcano is a planetarium program designed to teach your students about some of the basic large-scale geologic history and workings of our planet Earth. The students will learn about different types of volcanoes, how they work, and their association with earthquakes and continental drift. Then we will venture beyond Earth into the Solar System, investigating volcanism on the Moon, Venus, Mars, Io and Triton.

This Teacher’s Guide is designed to help you, the teacher, better prepare your students for their upcoming presentation of Volcano when the Northern Stars Planetarium visits your school. This guide contains background information for you and a few worksheets for you to copy and distribute to your students.
