Students will learn, eat, and use academic writing to apply knowledge about shield, composite (strato), and cinder cone volcanoes. This editable and edible CER 4-page volcanoes lab uses affordable and easily accessible supplies. Each group of 2-3 students will need 1 cookie, 1 chip, 1 kiss, and a metric ruler to measure dimensions in millimeters.

 

Topics

  • Types of Volcanoes
  • Characteristics of Volcanoes
  • Cinder Cone Volcanoes
  • Shield Volcanoes
  • Composite Cone Volcanoes (Stratovolcanoes)
  • CER in Science

 

Lab Overview
– Students will answer three pre-lab questions (using included reference sheet for support).
– Students will then measure the dimensions of each food using a metric ruler, and then claim what food represents each type of volcano. Students will back up their claims with reasons and evidence.
– Students will then draw volcanoes to scale.
– As a culminating activity, students will work on their own to complete a final short CER activity based on a question prompt of if volcanoes are helpful or harmful to society and the environment (editable and differentiated rubrics included). Sometimes I assign this last part, sometimes I do not if we are low on time, and sometimes I offer it as extra credit. This is editable as well!
