This lesson is designed for KS2 students. It can be taught as a stand alone lesson but is also available as part of two wider units, both of which are available on Teach It Forward:
First the presentation looks at Mount Etna and Mount Vesuvius in Italy and asks why people choose to live so close to volcanoes.
The activity then challenges students to think about the advantages and disadvantages of living near a volcano. There is also an extension writing activity:
Students sort statements and photos into advantages and disadvantages of living near a volcano.
Students write about the advantages and disadvantages of living near a volcano. Stickers and a vocabulary prompt are provided for this activity.
