Check out our volcano rap!

Listen to the mp3 link and try and rap along to learn about volcanoes!

Volcano, volcano, what do you know?
Be careful, be careful, because it might blow!
Where do they come from and what do they do?
Well sit down and relax and I will tell you!

The Earth is made up of layers one, two and three,
They’re deep in the Earth and something you can’t see,
The first layer is the inner and outer core,
But it doesn’t stop there, there is more!

Nickle and iron is in the inner core,
And super hot lava is in the outer core!
All this happens 3000 miles below,
Did you know that? Well now you know!

The second layer is mantel and it is great,
It’s made of hard rock and 85% of the Earth’s weight!
It is so hard, just like a brick,
And it’s also 1,800 miles thick!

And finally we have and 18 mile crust,
It’s made up of plates which you can not trust,
If they shift, things begin to shake,
And this is how we get an Earthquake!

So inside the Earth there magma inside,
And deep below the Earth is where it hides,
But when magma comes out of the volcano,
It is so hot, you will definitely know,

Because magma escapes from the main vent,
From a volcano which looks like a giant rock tent,
Then it erupts and things are bad,
And the magma turns to lava and we get ash cloud,

The magma flows from the crater at the top,
And once it starts, it won’t stop!
This can be bad for you and me,
So never live near a volcano or you will see,

Volcano, volcano, what do you know?
Be careful, be careful, because it might blow!

If a volcano is dormant this means it’s dead,
Just make sure you’re careful, just like we said!
