This video link from BBC offers an extremely informative tour of volcanoes from around the world.

After learning about volcanos, I would have the students choose a volcano from anywhere around the world and write an essay on what they know about that volcano from the notes that they took in class.  As well, UAF has a great geophysical institute where I could take students on a field trip to, to learn from professional volcanologists.
