Volcano Facts!!

             How are Volcanoes made?
Volcanoes are really mountains that build taller, with time, as they erupt.
That means that molten rock, magma, comes from inside the earth and erupts onto the crust or surface. The volcano might be explosive and produce ashes or lava. The explosions are usually first because there are lots of gases inside.
How many Volcanoes Were Identified?
Scientist know of at least 1,500 active volcanoes in and around the world. That is a big increase from the number that they thought was right. It means that more people are searching the earth for Volcanoes. A graph of the number of volcanoes of the world shows that it goes up just about as fast as the number of people on the earth does. Most people search for extinct,dormant,and active if brave enough!
