The SuperSchemes series provides primary teachers with the means to develop geography units of work with confidence. Each book starts with:
  • advice and guidance on how to approach the topic
  • an explanation of the geography rooted in the unit
  • background information to get you started.
The whole suggested unit is laid out in the medium term plan, which is followed by detailed and resourced lesson plans for two lessons. Further ideas for developing the remaining four lessons in the unit complete the book and provide you with a springboard to take your geography teaching further. This book will enable all primary teachers to teach good geography about mountains and volcanoes.

The unit of six lessons aims to help pupils to learn the main features of mountains and understand how they are formed. Pupils will also learn about volcanoes and where and why they occur, with a focus on Mount Vesuvius in Italy. Pupils will extend their knowledge by investigating the location of mountains, mountain ranges and volcanoes worldwide, including their defining physical and human characteristics, and begin to understand and describe the processes that give rise to these key physical geographical features of the world.
