Type in the names of the volcanoes to find them on the map, before labelling them on your sheet in the correct locations.
You may want to copy and paste pictures of the volcanoes you find too.
Use the shapes of the land on the map to help you identify where in the world the volcanoes are, think about the cities that are nearby, and the seas that you can spot on your large map on the worksheet.
Research about a volcano of your choice and produce a report.
