Kinds of Volcanoes

This matches up with California State Science Standards. I use this site as a reference point for a volcano project that I do in the spring. Email me and when we're done with the project, I'll send a few photos.

Great site to use for a volcano lesson. Had wonderful pictures, and lots of them. Great information that is pertinent to the topic. Gives great details and supproting facts. Covers basically all one needs to know when exploring different kinds of volcanoes and how they are classified.

Web page could have been decorated and laid out better.
