Volcanoes
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Life is full of accidents. You've probably had some accidents in your lifetime. Have you ever cut yourself accidentally? A lot of things happen when you cut yourself. First of all, it hurts. Sometimes it hurts a lot. Secondly, many cuts bleed. Your body forms a scab. Sure, they're gross, but scabs keep you from bleeding to death.
 
2     That whole process makes you a little like a volcano.
 
3     The Earth is made up of many parts. Deep inside the Earth is very hot. It's hot enough to melt rocks. This layer of hot, molten rock is called the mantle. Around the mantle is a relatively thin layer called the crust. Sand, dirt, bedrock, mountains, and ocean floors are all part of the crust.
