Volcanoes
This learning journey is Inspired by episode one of the BBC documentary 'A Perfect Planet'. This episode focuses on volcanoes, how they affect life on Earth and their link to climate change  and the balance of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. There are recommended video clips to show from the documentary in your classroom, however the activities can work without this resource.
