2010 Eruption of Eyjafjallajökull Revisited

I’ve never taught volcanoes at GCSE, so this will be interesting. As a case study of primary and secondary hazards I’m returning to Eyjafjallajökull. This is my starter…


I’ve adapted a topical resource that I made at the time…

This will be followed by a classification exercise, which I will do whole class by printing the statements A4 and distributing them around the classroom. Students can then note the impacts on the provided worksheet. I’ve also included a case study summary and an example exam question. The resources, without a couple of video clips, can be downloaded below.

Introductory PowerPoint 6.95mb pptx
Impact Statements 80kb pptx
Worksheet 128kb docx
Case study summary 60kb docx
Example exam question 17kb docx

Alternatively, you can download them from my TES resource page.
