Volcanoes!: Forecasting the Path of Mudflows

Students construct a mockup of a volcano by crumbling up newspapers and piling them into the shape of a volcano. They place a tarp over the newspapers making sure the tarp is large enough to simulate a flat area at the volcano's base. They then create plenty of hills and valleys referring to photographs on a poster and the topographic map on Activity Sheet 4.1b.
