Show how volcanic hot spots form with our dynamic model!
Most volcanoes form at tectonic plate boundaries but others form away from these areas in places known as hot spots. Help your students understand why these happen and how they form chains of volcanoes.
First, your students build their model out of the colourful parts. Next, they use their model to look at how hot spots form, why volcanoes form at them and move the parts of the model to see how chains of active and extinct volcanoes occur.
