    Lava Hospital Field Trip

    • 350 Words
    • 2 Pages

    teachers, has been thinking about going on a field trip to a very amazing and educational place. We have been thinking about going on a field trip to the Lava Beds National Monument, but to do this we would need your approval which I hope we will receive after I give you the in depth details of the educational values we would indulge in on this trip. On this field trip we would learn about the history of the formation of the lava beds, we would get to explore the caves and see how remarkable they are, and finally we would learn safety tactics for exploring underground caves. The Lava Beds National Monument is a series of underground caves which are sometimes referred to as lava tubes that have formed over the course of history. These caves as stated in the paragraph,"Formed from a variety of volcanic eruptions that occurred over the last half million years." Just think of how many volcanic eruptions must have happened over the past half million years for as stated in the paragraph"700 caves" to form. Also another interesting fact about the Lava Beds National Monument is that "The majority of the landscape of Lava Beds National Monument was once covered with lava." This means that for a long period of time all of the beautiful underground caves that are available to be explored today were just covered up with sizzling hot lava. Now I do not know if I am speaking for my self here, but that is a huge amount of interesting history that I think a lot of kids would like to…

    You Didn’t Know About Lava” that I found from the magazine Discover did a very nice job talking about lava and the variations of it. Although she’s not a full-blown geologist she did a nice job with information very close to that of what’s been inscribed into our text books and what’s been told to us in class. After reading the article I did some research on Gemma Tarlach to see what made her qualified to be able to write a paper about the lava and its different types, while still having…

    Volcano Informative Speech

    over to California. I do think the government at this moment has any way of protection against the probability of another eruption. Most of the people in this area would have to flee to another country south of Mexico. That would be a pain to try to get everyone to leave. Most people would be conspicuous of the sudden turn of events and would not leave their homes. While in other countries they might leave, but due to the change of attitude in the United States of America they would have second…

    Holocene activity has consisted of plinian eruptions followed by emission of voluminous andesitic and dacitic lava flows, which form an extensive apron around the volcano on all sides but the south. Records of historical eruptions date back to 1750” (Global Volcanism Program). It cannot be said for certain when the volcano’s early activity started simply due to the lack of record-keeping prior to the eighteenth century, as well as the general lack of technology that could have been used to…
