An eruption through the window?

This image shows the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland. Have you tried 'An eruption through the window; how could an eruption transform your view? - lava, ash, lahar or something worse'
Picture a large volcano to the left of the window - how would your view be affected by an eruption of the volcano?
- What would you see — and how would this change as the eruption continued?
- What else might you sense — by hearing, smelling, tasting or in other ways?
- How might you be feeling?
- Would you be safe? Would your friends and family be safe?
- What might the view be like after the end of the eruption?
This is one of many 'through the window' activities you can find on our website. Do please send us your pupils' accounts.
