  1. Mr.Moore,
    I leand that Shield Volcnoes are huge in size.Another thing I learned is that they are bulit by many layers runny lava flows.

  2. Dear Mr. Moore,
    These are a couple of things I learned from the links you posted.One thing I learned that I didn't know was that Mt. St. Helens erupted in 2008. Another thing I learned that I didn't know was that shield volcanoes look like flat ground.

  3. Dear, Mr.Moore
    I went to Vartual Pompeil and I found that the earths crusted is divided in large sections called Tectonic plate. Active vocanoes plate is mostly the the boandar plate. THe Ring of Fire is the mosted active vocanoe. It runs along the westn coast of Americans, along Alaska's Aleution Island and down the eastern coast of Asia. This is where I went to.
    Sincerely, Noemi

  4. Dear Mr.Moore,

    I learned something from the sight
    and I learned there is a ring of fire where volcanoes are on.


  5. Dear Mr. Moore,

    I learned that earths plates only move about ten centimeters a year. Also I learned that strato volcanoes are formed by building layers of lava.

    I visited the site called Global Volcanism Program. I learned that there is one volcano in Colorado called Dotsero. There is lava that runs under Interstate 70. The last time it erupted was 2200 BC + 300 years.
