Volcanoes are caused by boiling rock from the centre of the Earth. Volcanoes can happen anywhere. The Earth’s crust is all one piece. Volcanoes can only happen on plate boundaries. The Ring of Fire is so called because it has loads of volcanoes. Iceland has lots of volcanoes because it’s cold. Tectonic plates are good for baked beans.
Volcanoes. By: Shawniah Work. What is it? A volcanoe is a mountain that opens downward to a pool of molten rock below the surface of the Earth. When the pressure under it builds up that's when it erupts. How can we prevent people from dying from this disaster? 1. Read about past eruptions in the area. 2. Observe the volcano before getting close to the danger zone. 3. Know the current volcano.What causes volcanoes? Inside the earth's core there is a red-hot liquid rock, called magma. Volcanoes happen when magma rises to the surface of the earth, which causes bubbles of gas to appear in it. This gas can cause pressure to build up in the mountain, and it eventually explodes. When the magma bursts out of the earth, it is called lava.People tend to think of volcanoes as destructive but they can have some benefit. Volcanic ash is very good for soil, so plants can grow quickly and strong after a volcano. Volcanic slopes left after an eruption are very steep, so if rare and delicate plants and animals set up home there they are naturally protected.
On a map name the volcanoes of the world. Draw and label the parts of a volcano. Read about volcanoes and complete the questions. Write a new report about a volcano that has erupted. Make your own volcano- speak to your parents first! Find out about the world’s most dangerous volcanoes- can you find them on a map. (There is an extra.Read More
Volcanoes are formed when magma from within the Earth's upper mantle works its way to the surface. At the surface, it erupts to form lava flows and ash deposits. Over time as the volcano continues to erupt, it will get bigger and bigger.Read More

Using the global distribution map for earthquakes and volcanoes, where do you see the most activity around the world? Try to be as precise as possible. The western edge of the Pacific Ring of Fire has an exceptionally high level of tectonic activity where the Pacific plate meets the Eurasian plate and Philippine plate. What are the associated plate margins for a composite volcano and a shield.Read More
Sometimes, when the volcanoes have erupted, they cook their food on the hot rocks. In addition, they gather large mushrooms and dig up juicy roots that grow in the forest. Surprisingly, goats are not on the menu! Did you know? Amazingly, trolls like to have fun. They love singing and dancing. When they sing, it sounds like a rumble of thunder. When they dance, it feels like an earthquake.Read More

A supervolcano is a large volcano that has had an eruption with a Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) of 8, the largest recorded value on the index. This means the volume of deposits for that eruption is greater than 1,000 cubic kilometers (240 cubic miles). Location of Yellowstone hotspot over time (numbers indicate millions of years before the present). Satellite image of Lake Toba, the site of.Read More
