Plate Tectonics School Trips

Are your students learning about the structure of the earth and the movement of tectonic plates? If so, a carefully chosen geography school trip could help them better understand the effects of, and responses to, tectonic hazards.

A visit to Iceland, with its volcanic craters and lagoons, provides the perfect setting for learning about how plate movements have shaped (and continue to shape) the landscape.

Naples and Sorrento provide an opportunity to better understand the impact of volcanoes on humans, with a visit to the famous archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, whilst also allowing students to experience the rich biodiversity of the region.

The island of Sicily is another popular destination - its varied landscapes and spectacular coastline support the study of varied ecosystems, and the impact of Europe’s tallest active volcano, Mount Etna, on the landscape is clearly visible. Your students will even be able to observe actual eruptive activity with a trip to Stromboli.
