Description: Using a variety of online, print, and visual evidence, students will be challenged to defend of refute the label, Ring of Fire, as an accurate and appropriate description of the physical region of the Pacific Rim and its history, as well as future potential for devastating tectonic events. As a conclusion to student investigations, students will create and publish their findings in an online, digital journal. The lesson is most effective if students have access to the internet at multiple stages of the lesson; however, options are available should access be limited.
