Igneous Activity – Animations

The following link will take you to a series of animations that model different types of igneous activity. This site could be used as part of a greater unit on volcanoes, tectonics, or igneous activities on Earth. Perhaps the best feature of these animations is the timeline which help the viewer understand just how long it takes for igneous activities to produce something such as a volcano or volcanic island arc. Simple, yet effective animations (labels, but no audio narration associated with animations).
