This picture focuses on the basics of what makes up a volcano.

This resource is important so that the student can understand what makes up a volcano. It shows the different aspects to the volcano so they can have a better understanding.


A volcano is a mountain that opens downward to a reservoir of molten rock below the surface of the earth. Unlike most mountains, which are pushed up from below, volcanoes are vents through which molten rock escapes to the earth’s surface. When pressure from gases within the molten rock becomes too great, an eruption occurs. Eruptions can be quiet or explosive. There may be lava flows, flattened landscapes, poisonous gases, and flying rock and ash that can sometimes travel hundreds of miles downwind.

This website helps to provide the student with steps to take if they are ever near a volcano. I choose this because this can be beneficial information that is not commonly shared with students.

types of volcanoes1

Some types of
volcanoes are easily recognizable and some are not. The "Hollywood" types are
easily recognized. Many are located in populated areas and have well-known names:
Vesuvius, Krakatoa, Fujiyama, and Mount St. Helens. These volcanoes are typically tens of
miles across and ten thousand or more feet in height. As illustrated in the figure above,
they have moderately steep sides and sometimes have small craters in their summits.
Volcanologists call these "strato-" or composite volcanoes because they consist
of layers of solid lava flows mixed with layers of sand- or gravel-like volcanic rock
called cinders or volcanic ash.

I choose this website because it shows the students the different kinds of volcanos. This is important for them to identify what they are looking at and researching.
