Volcano Self-Portrait

Learn about what makes a volcano: How are volcanoes formed? What causes different types of volcanoes? Why are some eruptions explosive and some eruptions flow? Reflect on your personal growth and goals and create a portrait of yourself as a volcano. How can you - like a volcano-  make an impact on the world?
