Working in cooperative groups called Trekking Trios, students travel to Hawaii in a quest to reach the top of Pele’s Peak. On their journey they are challenged to complete Volcano Vocabulary, compose an original myth, write a letter to a volcanologist, and research a volcano and the Hawaiian Islands. Students record each day’s events in a Lava Log, and complete team tasks to earn Fate cards. They build model volcanoes and erupt them at the culminating luau, which also features Hawaiian music, food, and a skit showcasing what the students have learned. Includes a Pele’s Peak poster. Unmodified, 10 class periods.
