For our Extreme Earth theme, we spent the afternoon making and exploding our own volcanoes!
Volcanoes are formed when pressure builds up inside the earth and pushes magma up through the crust. We formed our volcanoes from salt dough and covered these in rocks and sand.
Once our volcanoes were formed, we waited to see if they were active or dormant. Volcanoes erupt when molten rock called magma rises to the surface.
Have a look at us making our erupting volcanoes below!
