Onosai learns about Volcanic Pressure

On Monday afternoon Miss King handed out balloons and asked us if we can show pressure by blowing up a balloon. So we huffed and puffed and it got bigger and bigger and my one popped. When the volcano shakes that means pressure is building and it is going to explode. And lava, gas, smoke and ashes come out of the volcano and ash clouds block the sky.

Click here to watch the movie we made about our learning.

  1. Hi Onasai
    The infomation that you have provided really tells me what you are talking about and the pressure of a volcano when it is ready to blow it's top. I am sure that you had lot's of fun making a ballon pop by forming a lot of air pressure in the ballon. The lava finds cracks in the earths crust and builds pressure. Good Post.
    Bye for now!
