Description:

In this Earth science animation, middle and high school students see how the Hawaiian Islands have formed over a hot spot. The animation consists of two coordinated video clips that offer different views of the volcano-creating process. Labels and descriptions are provided within the clips. An introductory paragraph explains how a string of islands forms as a lithospheric plate moves over a stationary hot spot, as depicted in the animation. Students are encouraged to use the movie control buttons to review the text in the two clips. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
