Erupting with joy

To complete our geography work on natural disasters, Year 5 have been constructing 3D models to show their understanding of the main parts of a volcano. We used our creative skills to produce cross-sections that show the location of the main vent, secondary vent, magma chamber and crater.   

In class, we have learnt about the hazards of living close to volcanoes but also the benefits such as the fertile land that results from the material produced during an eruption, the geothermal energy that can be used from the heat of a volcano and the money that comes into an area from lots of tourists who are eager to see volcanoes.
