What is a volcano?

A volcano is a break in Earth's ground and hot, liquid rock from really far below the ground pours out of it. The liquid is called magma. A volcano is made when magma from Earth's mantle comes shooting through a break in the crust and goes toward the surface. It takes Earth about thousand and some times millions of years to form a volcano. The second tallest volcano is Kilauea and it rises over (4,000) feet, and (1,219m) above the sea. It's really located on the hill of an even bigger volcano called Mauna Loa! Both volcanoes erupt, but Kilauea erupts more.
