  • Volcanoes occur when materials from the mantle erupts or blasts onto the surface


Types of volcanoes
Types of Volcanoes

  • Shield volcanoes form when some lava spreads around the vent in a quiet eruption

  • Cinder cones form by violently erupting volcanoes that shoot cinders out of the top

  • Composite volcanoes forms when cinders make up layers and lava flow makes the layers


Parts of a volcano
