Geography model - Make a model volcano
This volcano model was made by a 9 year old kid, with a bit of help from their mum. We say 'Top marks - Well done!' An excellent volcano project and you can see how to make it by clicking on this picture and visiting their website.
This teaching idea has been a favourite for many years. Indeed, Westminster School in London asked all their Year 9 and Year 10 pupils what they liked about their Geography lessons prior to joining them at Westminster School and the favourite activity listed was making models of volcanoes. This lesson idea is not a new one but its popularity and effectiveness as a learning tool endures.
3D Volcano model that opens up to see inside.
This volcano model comes from Japan and it has to rate as the best paper template we have seen here at 3DGeography.co.uk. We love this template and despite it being a slightly tricky one to make, we think the finished geography model is amazing. If you click on the photo, it will take you to Canon's website full of other interesting templates that you can make. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up from us.

Recent 3D Volcano model - Eyjafjallajökull.
Two great institutions came together for these models. First, the British Geological survey made accurate 3D model templates of the recently erupted volcano in Iceland. Then, Blue Peter, the world's longest running Children's TV show told everyone how to make them. You can watch the video clip on how to make the volcano models by following the links on the BGS website.
