Volcanoes

By; Samantha Hietpas

Weather/disaster Poem

The ground was shaking, it felt like the

Earth was falling apart..


Boom! Boom! Boom!

The volcano grumbled multiple times


Volcanoes are formed when magma from the

Earth’s upper mantle, works its way to the surface


The volcano sounded like a tiger roaring in the

distance but, getting closer and louder

each second

A volcano is a mountain that opens downward

to a pool of molten rock under the surface

of the earth


The lava spilled out of the

volcano like water going out of a whale

in the ocean


There are more than

1500 active volcanoes

on the earth


We currently know of 80 or more active

volcanoes which are under the oceans


An active volcano is one which has erupted earlier and there is

a possibility that it might erupt sooner or later



Volcanoes are grouped into four types,


Cinder cones, composite volcanoes,

shield volcanoes, and lava

volcanoes

Final Paragraph On Volcanoes

According to www.weatherwizkids.com volcanoes explode when the lava flows and ash deposits. Lava also goes down slowly and thickens as it hardens. Fresh lava glows red hot while it flows it turns into white hot. For a dormant volcano is a volcano that already erupted a long time ago but, might erupt again in the future. In the United States active volcanoes are found mainly in Hawaii, Alaska, California, Oregon and Washington.
