Activity Overview


For this volcano activity, students will identify cause and effect relationships. Many events unfold or problems occur because of previous events and situations. Identifying cause and effect relationships in informational texts can help students better understand natural processes, historical events, social changes and trends, and more. The example below pulls out three examples from the text, Volcanoes, showing various patterns of volcanic activity.


CAUSE EFFECT

Example 1

In 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted with incredible force. Many houses and roads were destroyed, and 57 people lost their lives.

Example 2

In 1963, an undersea volcano in Iceland began to boil and churn. A new island, Surtsey, was formed.

Example 3

Volcanoes erupted repeatedly over several million years. Mountains that were high enough to reach from the deep sea bottom appeared as the Hawaiian Islands.
