ALL: Volcanoes! Activities before our visit to Olot.

We are visiting the volcanic area of Olot this year and that is why we are going to learn about volcanoes!


LISTENING

1-There are different types of volcanoes
2-Hot melted rock is called magma outside of the volcano
3-The Ring of Fire has 75% of volcanoes on Earth
4-There aren't volcanoes in other planets
5-Pumice is a rock that can float on water


ESO 3 & 4: Watch the video. True or False?
http://www.buzzle.com/images/diagrams/parts-of-earth.jpg1-In the past, volcanoes were believed to start in the Core of the Earth.
2-Magma is found between the Upper Mantle and the Lower Crust
3-Heat and gases always press the magma up gently, not violently
4-Lava is what magma is called after it comes out of the volcano
5-The biggest volcano on Earth is Mauna Loa, on the biggest island of Hawaii

PUNS: one apple a day keeps the doctor (volcano) away; eat around the crust (sandwich); can you give me a hand?; it's as easy as pie.
