I found this website to be helpful learning about volcanoes. It has useful information as to why volcanoes occur, different types of volcanoes, what occurs when a volcano errupts, future predictions, and how to reduce its risk. There are also other related resources that are suggested. I also enjoyed the short real life video clips about volcanoes.

This is a great website. It has great information, pictures, and vidoes. It also is very easy to read and follow. There is a lot of information that a teacher could pull from this website to make some great lessons/activities.

Technical Remarks:

Pictures could have been larger, and they could have made full use of each page (lots of space left on each page).
