Molten rock below the surface of Earth that rises in volcanic vents is known as magma, but after it erupts from a volcano it is called lava. Originating many tens of miles beneath the ground, the ascending magma commonly contains some crystals, fragments of surrounding (unmelted) rocks, and dissolved gases, but it is primarily a liquid composed of oxygen, silicon, aluminum, iron, magnesium.
This project shows you how to make a great working volcano using posterboard rather than paper-mache or plaster. It's easier, faster, and perfect for younger children. The volcano takes a half hour and is ready to be decorated, painted, and then erupted!
Explosive Volcano Unit! We spent most of this week learning about volcanoes!

Squeeze out.

The first step in making the I Lava You Volcano Craft is to cut out a volcano shape using brown construction paper. Using your glue stick glue the volcano onto a piece of white construction paper making the bottom of the volcano flush with the white construction paper.
An erupting volcano cake rolls a cooking class and a science experiment into one. The volcano is made of cake, frosting and other sweets, and the foaming lava is made of Jell-O and baking soda—yes, this treat is completely edible. Not to mention, it puts on an impressive show.
