Today,we looked at a range of volcanoes and discovered what they consist of.

Although we’ve been learning a lot about natural disasters, it was useful to focus on one area and use the keywords when talking to our learning partner.

Here are some words that were used frequently today:

  • Ash
  • Conduit
  • Crater
  • Flank
  • Lava
  • Magma chamber
  • Parasitic cone
  • Sill
  • Summit
  • Vent

After discussing the keywords, we drew a cross-section of a volcano and used recycled paper to add detail to it.
