Volcanoes from Around the World

WALT:Through finding out about volcanoes around the world to pin on a map, we are learning to make meaning of a range of texts by identifying main ideas in them and then translating the information and ideas that we learn into our own words.

We had to create a map showing where are they and how can they affect the world. we had to create it  because people around the world could see where they are. we used Google maps and a pin to show where it is.

While completing this task I have learnt that a lot of the volcanoes are on the ring of fire. The reason why Christchurch always gets earthquakes, is because the Pacific boundary line is exactly on Christchurch. For safety you must be careful if you live near or close to a volcano. I enjoyed knowing all about Volcanoes, and how powerful they can be.
