Technology Integration Lesson Plan
Name: Michael D. Plocher
Lesson Title: Volcano Concept Map
Date: March 12, 2012
Subject/Topic: Science – Earth and Space Science
Source of Plan: Purdue University – Information Technology at Purdue - wiki site
Brief Description:
Middle to upper grade students create a concept map showing the relationship between the
three main types of volcanoes using concept mapping software.
 Concept mapping software
o Encourages students to stay on task.
o Saves student time on production tasks
o Produces professional, polished looking products which motivate students
o Allows easier, faster updates/corrections to student work.
 Make a concept map of the three main types of volcanoes.
 List each volcano’s features that were learned in class.
2009 Minnesota Academic Standards – Earth and Space Science
Standards  Correlate the distribution of ocean trenches, mid-ocean ridges and mountain
ranges to volcanic and seismic activity
 Recognize that major geological events, such as earthquakes, volcanic
eruptions and mountain building, result from the slow movement of tectonic
 Explain how landforms result from the process of crustal deformation,
volcanic eruptions, weathering, erosion and deposition of sediment.
ISTE-NETS Student Standards
1. Creativity and Innovation
Create original works as a means of personal or group expression.
2. Communication and Collaboration
Communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media
and information.
Grade Levels: Grades 6 through 8
Time Frame: 1.5 class periods
Technology website, computer, SMARTBoard (SB), projector, notebook computers,
computer lab
Other resources: Volcano concept map rubric, Earth science textbook
Preparation Prior 1. Verify students have concept mapping skills and can use the website.
to Class: 2. Print rubrics for each student.
3. Verify computer lab or mobile computers are available for student use.
Developing 1. Ask students to recall the three types of volcanoes they recently learned about.
Background: 2. Call on a few students and have them briefly list some features of those volcanoes.
Detailed Lesson 1. Today we are going to be creating a concept map to show the features of the three types of
volcanoes we learned about in our volcano unit.
2. Since the students already have a working knowledge about concept mapping software,
they should log in to the Internet and go to website. If some students are
unfamiliar with the website give a brief explanation and demonstration of the website using the SB. The students should not create a account at this
3. Distribute rubrics to each student.
4. Explain to the students that they must create a concept map with the three types of

volcanoes listed. They must also list the shape of each volcano, the type of material
ejected, the composition of the material that was ejected, and whether the eruptions are
explosive or quiet. Finally, they must list the name of a real volcano for each of the three
volcanoes they mapped.
5. The students should be able to do this from memory, but if they are having difficulty, they
may look up information in their notes or on the Internet.
6. Help and answer any questions the students may have.
7. After everyone is done, have students print off their concept maps and present them to their
8. When done, collect their concept maps and rubrics. Score the concept maps using the
concept map rubric.
