Making a volcano model is one of the most popular activities set in school and despite everyone being set the same task, the variety of models produced is a testament to the creativity of young learners today. We have collated a range of images of volcano models to inspire you. Plus you can find templates of volcano models that you can print off and make at home. Why not make a volcano model today!

This volcano model has a firework in its top to resemble the volcanic eruption. You might want to ask for permission before setting off fireworks indoors but it certainly adds a sense of excitement to the model.

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.

Volcano models often focus on the volcano naturally but we like this model as it looks at the causes of volcanoes and concentrates on the plate boundary. In wonderful colour and easy to understand, click on the image to visit the educational blog it came from.
