This Hazards: First Grade Lesson Plans and Activities unit also includes:

Examine the environmental hazards associated with volcanoes with a three-part science lesson. In the pre-lab, first graders learn that gas, landslides, ash, and lava are all hazards that come from volcanoes. They then explore hazardous volcanoes on Earth and their states—active, extinct, or dormant—by studying and plotting them on a map. The post-lab activity helps learners to visualize the dangers of a volcano.
