During this lesson, students learn also about volcanoes – how and where they build themselves, parts of the volcano, types of volcanoes, types of eruptions and famous volcanoes. In Chemistry class they learn about ores that build volcanoes. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to label parts of the volcano and recognize the type of a volcano on different photographs and pictures, and they will make a 3D model by using a detailed map. They will also name the ores and get to know the chemical background of volcanic eruptions.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
