In this lesson you will use the Internet to research
information on volcanoes and then write a report on
your results. A volcano is a location where magma, or hot melted rock from within a planet, reaches the surface. It may happen violently, in a massive supersonic explosion, or mor quietly, as a sticky, slow lava flow.
Volcanoes have been a part of earth's history long before
humans. Compare the history of human beings, a few million
years in the making, to that of the Earth, over four
billion years in the making.
