These volcanoes are from all around the world. Activity: Find each of the featured volcanoes on a map or globe.

      There is some good stuff here, unfortunately, it is difficult to find cool and fresh volcano lab ideas for kids these days and yet you do find a way to offer up a couple of cool things. There is ONE more activity idea on pinchxeverything: under the title, "three different kinds of volcanoes" for anyone who is looking. Thanks so much for the ideas and resources.
