Pembleton's Lab 2 Volcanoes

What is a Volcano?

Volcanoes are mountains formed by magma, and volcanic ash. Volcanoes can exist on land, under water, and even on other planets! Volcanoes start small but over long periods of time, magma, which turns into lava when it reaches the volcano’s surface, piles up causing the volcano to grow.  In fact, the entire Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanic eruptions. Sometimes when they erupt, they get smaller or change shape like Mt. St. Helens in Washington State, when the side blew out!

Until Next Time, Pembleton wants you to KEEP BEING CURIOUS!
