• Write the report from your point of view as a volcanologist. Some things to include may be, but are not limited to:

o Are there any changes in the hot springs around the volcano?
o Are there any changes in the temperature of the rocks on the volcano?
o What kind of volcano is it?
o What is the ground like- is it in the middle of a tectonic plate? Or at a plate boundary?
Remember to:
• Write in your own words
• Be detailed
• Use your best academic spelling and grammar
• Show me that you know what the vocabulary words mean- not simply by writing definitions within your paper, but make sure that they fit well into your writing.
What do I want to see? You can make this report a video journal, a powerpoint, or an essay.
Be creative, but remember: The information that you include is the most important part of your project. No matter how beautiful your project is, if it does not fulfill the requirements for the unit project, it will not receive a passing score.
