3 Types of Volcanoes

There are 3 types of volcanoes: Cinder Cone, Composite, and Shield.

Cinder Cone

Cinder Cone volcanoes are the most dangerous volcanoes. They can burn cities to ashes. They can also kill lots of people. They shoot lots of ashes, smoke, gases and lava out into the air. They are very steep. They can explode very badly.


Composite volcanoes are the 2nd most dangerous volcanoes. At the top they are steep and at the bottom they have a small slope. They shoot ashes and lava into the air. They will destroy ciies and houses and cause fires.


Shield volcanoes are the least dangerous. They dont shot anything into the air. People have lots of time to flee and save thierselves.
