A Teachers' Guide to Hawaiian Volcanoes
Stephen Mattox

A Teachers' Guide to the Geology of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park is a complete curriculum resource for K-12 teachers interested in volcanoes and earthquakes. The 391-page guide, developed with a grant from the National Park Foundation, contains 18 lessons, teacher background, line masters, 165 activities, and 60 annotated slides. The lessons describe plate tectonics, hot spots, the location and evolution of Hawaiian volcanoes, volcanic landforms, kinds of eruptions, volcano monitoring methods, the ongoing eruption of volcano, volcanic products, the origin of earthquakes, earthquake magnitude and intensity, and earthquake hazards. The slides are from the photo archive of the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

The guide is available for $54.95 plus shipping, from the Hawai'i Natural History Association (808) 967-7604. A 15% discount is available to educational institutions.

All profits from the guide go to the Hawai'i Natural History Association to increase the quality of education in the park. If you have any questions about this guide, please contact the author at (808) 967-7482.
