In this activity, students will identify the relationship between scientific concepts about volcanic activity and our world.
The example explains the relationship between volcanic eruptions and current topography of Hawaii.
- The Hawaiian Islands were formed by eruptions in the middle of the Pacific Plate.
- Hawaii is constantly changing; the eruptions of the Mauna Loa and Kilauea volcanoes add hundreds of acres of new land.
- Old lava flows are quickly weathered by waves into rocks and black sand.
- Depending on the type of eruption, cooled lava can create a rough tangle of sharp rocks or a smooth, billowy surface.
