  • The word comes from the Roman name “Vulcan”, the Roman god of fire.
  • Volcanoes are usually found at meeting points of tectonic plates which cause earthquakes, eruptions, and the building of new mountains.
  • Volcanoes can be active, dormant, or extinct. 
  • Active volcanoes have erupted within the last 10,000 years or have other activity. 
  • A dormant volcano is one that hasn’t erupted in the last 10,000 years, but it might do it at some point. 
  • Extinct volcanoes haven’t erupted in the last 10,000 years and are unlikely to erupt in the future.

  • Lava is so hot, it can get up to 2,282°F (1,250°C).
