Reaching out to a volcano can be a precarious enterprise. Reaching out to teach young people about volcanoes and related geological matters is less precarious, particularly after discovering this site. Created by staff members at the United States Geological Survey's Cascades Volcano Observatory, this site brings together educational materials such as short videos, printable posters, and fact sheets. Teachers may wish to start at the "Learn About Volcanoes" area. Here they will find resources that will help them teach students about volcano terminology, eruption histories, and the answer to the question "Can Lava Be Diverted"� Moving along, the "Special Features and Useful Pages" includes interactive photo tours of Mount Rainier and an excellent timetable of the Cascade Range.
