There’s nothing like the prospect of a natural disaster to get students in the mood for some serious scientific investigation. In this lesson they will learn about volcanic activity and the nature of volcanic eruptions, be able to recall what happens during a volcanic eruption, and find out why ash, in particular, can cause problems for the global economy.
They will also be able to explain the human impact of a supervolcano and consider the various ways in which a disaster could be managed.
