Summary:This report contains instructions and a pattern for making a three-dimensional paper model of a volcano. This model is intended to help students and others visualize a stratovolcano (inside and out) and to learn some of the terms used by geologists in describing it. By construction and examining the model, students will obtain a greater appreciation of the relationship between the internal structure of the volcano and its exterior shape and features. This exercise may give the student an insight as to how a stratovolcano is formed. Included in this report are the paper model, instructions for assembly, educators' guide, and a simple description of volcanoes.
