To prepare for this project, students read the chapter on volcanoes in Grotzinger et al. In class, students receive specific instructions on what to include in their report, presentation as well as a specific volcanic eruption to investigate. Students individually research the volcanic eruption to learn more about a topic of interest to most students as well as to learn how to do research and how to write a paper. In the group project, they learn how to make an effective presentation. This presentation is self-contained and is supposed to be geared to a middle school audience. Some students do a very good job at explain the basic concepts to a student in that age group which means they really understand it.
