Far below the earth’s surface, gigantic plates of the earth’s crust are constantly moving. Where these plates meet, one piece may rub against another, causing an earthquake. But if one plate pushes itself under another, it will melt and become liquid rock or magma. The super hot liquid rock creates gas and steam, building pressure until it blasts through weak places in the earth’s surface. This is how a volcano erupt. Ryan
