Volcano PBL

What are volcanoes ?

Our planet has 4 layers.
The crust is the thin outer layer around the earth. Under the crust the The next layer is the mantle and it is 1880 km thick. The outer core is made with liquid that is very hot and it is beneath the mantle is the center of the earth is called inner core. The crust is broken into humongous pieces called tectonic plates. The tectonic  plates are moving slowly all the time. When they pull apart, the magma in the mantle will start to push up. When the magma comes to the surface it is called a volcanic eruption. Once the magma comes out it is called lava. When the lava cools down it turns into rock.  As more lava comes out the volcano builds up into a cone shape.


Farming-did you know that the richest soil is mostly found in a volcanic eruptions. The volcanic eruption can help the vegetables to grow because volcanic rocks are filled with minerals and nutrients.

Did you know that people drill into the crast of the earth to get the heated water and steam so they can get electricity in the power plants.

In Indonesia at 1815 there was a volcanic eruption and it was one of the world's biggest volcanic eruption. The next summer in America the weather changed and it was very cold and snowy .This  volcanic eruption was so big that the ash blocked out the sunlight.

The ash can stop the plans from flying and if they fly they will crash because when the ash goes into the engine that engine will stop working.



Ash is a lot of pieces of lava that comes out of a volcano.


The crust is the first layer of the earth.

My Special Place

My Special Place by Nevaeh
1.waves crashing

2.Seagulls /food sand


 As the waves were crashing like the sound of thunder, I jumped into the deep  blue sea.
When I jumped into the sea, I felt something nip my foot “ouch”. I opened my mouth under the water. It was as cold as ice and the water tasted bitter like salt.
I came up but I could not breath. I finally took a breath and started crying I ran towards mum and I told her what happened , so she got my towel  and wrapped  it up me and gave me something to eat.

It was lunchtime my mum and dad made some shortbread! It was so tasty. After our quick snack, we got some delicious  chocolate chip ice cream and pizza.
When we got in the car, a seagull flew into the window and stole my pizza and I said “give me back my pizza you stupid seagull “ I am never eating any food by the beach again.
The seagulls were so annoying when they were swelling because they were hurting my ears.

The hot sand was going between my toes like me stepping in lava. “Ouch” I yelled, the sand was burning my feet like me standing a stove/oven.The sand looks kinda red because it is a very hot day. Finally the tide reached the hot sand and cooled me off. After I had my cool off I asked my parents if they could build a sand castle. “Ah ha we did it” I said loudly,Whoosh, “Oh no” the waves swooped the sand castle away to the sea. Mum and Dad laughed but when they looked at me frowning they stopped laughing.

My mum went to go to MacDonald’s well me and my dad Adam were still in the nice warm tent. Yay mums back with MacDonald. We all gathered around  the fire and we were having tea on the loges. After we had tea we roasted some marshmallows. They were so nice “yum” I said. OMG my dad drop his stick and the marshmallow in the fire, I was laughing my head off. My sister Tyla was laughing as well just like the rest of us.    

                   What went well for me
                     What I could do better
What went well for me was adding enough detail and putting picture in the reader's head. Something that also did good was having complex sentences.
