Thinking About Volcanoes
                          Aims
• to look at and think about a series of volcano photos.
  There are some questions to help you think about
  each photo. Think of some more of your own.

• to think about the language we might use to
  describe the landforms and the processes shown in
  the photos. Make a list of suitable verbs (action
  words) and adjectives (describing words) that could
  be used to describe each photo.

• to learn some volcano words to add to our
  vocabulary
