In this Xpeditions lesson, students look at the anatomy of a volcano and the environment around it and learn about the igneous rocks that are formed when a volcano erupts. Students take a virtual visit to Big Island Pool in Hawaii via National Geographic's Xpedition Hall. Through this lesson, they come to see how forces of water (hydrosphere), wind (atmosphere), and geology (lithosphere) mold the Earth in which we live.
