There are so many ways to interact with this text, there are gorgeous pictures to talk to/around, regional terms and tier three vocabulary words with meanings or pronunciations included over features of the artistic diagrams and graphics when needed, onomatopoeias scattered in bold throughout, large text with simpler concepts, smaller text with details... lots to go with here! Another great aspect of this text to work with for compare contrast activities due to a strand crafted around the creative elements of volcanic activity. Plenty of other opportunities around elevation explorations in math/geography, or timelines for history could connect across content areas as well. You could use the book Life on Surtsey: Iceland’s Upstart Island to extend the creative powers of nature strand further for a unit on natural forces. And/or include books that show volcanos in as only a destructive force to discuss how the description changes the tone.
