super VOLCANOES

BY CARTER

     

      A volcano is a hole or a crack in the earth . A volcano is caused when melted rocks in the earth rise because it gets hot. Sometimes the lava flows gently and it flows slow. Other times, there is so much pressure that when it erupts it shoots out lava, ash, and gas really fast. Once the lava starts flowing nothing can stop it. The lava flows down and turns into a hard rock when it cools off.

Lava shoots out of a volcano during an eruption sometimes.

Where Volcanoes Happen

The ring of fire where volcanoes are located.

Volcanoes are mostly in the pacific ocean on borders between tectonic plates in the ring of fire.

Other Facts

      No one knows when a volcano will erupt until it actually does. Sometimes volcanoes are dormant. They haven’t erupted for a long time. The tallest lava fountain ever was five times higher than the Eiffel tower in Paris.

Lava that flows down the side of volcano.

       There is a famous volcano near Seattle, Washington. People all over the world come to see it. It is called Mount St. Helen's. It has not erupted for years. It erupted in the 1980's. It was on the 18th of May. A bunch of igneous rocks came out. A bunch of magma came out.
