Learning Objectives

  • The aim is to consolidate the technical terms belonging to stratovolcanoes and to clarify them to pupils with an alternative illustrative example.

Guiding Ideas

The pupils are able to solve two tasks within the world or with the help of an Atlas, textbook and the internet.

On one hand the pupils are required to identify stratovolcanoes around the globe, either ingame or with their atlas. On the other hand, they should find out why agricultural activities happen in spatial proximity to volcanoes.

Student Activities

The pupils can move around freely within the world. They are able to see a profile of a stratovolcano and inculcate the relevant technical terms. After that, two tasks are waiting, which can be solved with internal and external auxiliaries.

Performance Expectations

At the end of the teaching unit, the pupils should record their answers with the help of the ingame feature „Book and Quill“ and save the results to a file via the export-function for the teacher.
