Grade 4 - Planning

What would a Mount St. Helens eruption look like?

Questioning

What might a Mount St. Helens eruption look like? How would it look different from other volcanic eruptions?

Planning

Part of planning is locating resources. Brainstorm some possible resources. Brainstorm some keywords to use when searching. Keep your brainstorm lists in a Word document. Then begin the search!

Gathering

Locate at least three resources using your brainstorm list to get you started.

Sifting/Sorting

As you locate pictures of Mount St. Helens and other volcanic eruptions, which resources seem to have the best information?

Synthesizing

Choose one picture that you would like to share with your class. Be ready to share the name of the resource and explain how you found it.

Evaluating

Do you think you located the best possible resources to answer this question? Where else could you have looked?

Reporting

Share a picture and resource with your class.
