This model represents a Volcano eruption, and I built my model to best represent a cinder cone volcano.
Destructive and Constructive plate boundaries both create volcanos on the earth.
Destructive volcanos occur when two tectonic plate rub against each other. But one is more dense than the other, and the stronger one goes down towards the mantle. The other is called Constructive plate boundaries, are when two tectonic plates move in opposite directions and makes an opening where volcanos or crust can be made.
The red pieces coming out of the middle, is the lava erupting out of the volcano. When the magma cools down, (either inside of outside the volcano) it forms igneous rocks. Some igneous rocks have a smooth glassy texture because their formation occurs very rapidly.
We used “people” on the Volcano, because some people purposely live near volcanos to gather geothermal steam energy for electricity, volcanos attract a lot of attention from tourists, and there are miners who mine minerals like gold after the magma has cooled. Farmers also work near volcanos because all the rich soil helps their plants grow.
My picture represents a active volcano, because in the picture it is mid way erupting and spilling out magma. Before it was a dormant volcano, just sleeping and waiting for the right moment to erupt. After its erupting it turns to an extinct volcano and will no longer erupt.
Overall, this model best represent a volcano because of the “people on it”, and how it shows the tourists, miners and the farmers. It also shows the magma, and the way it was formed by plate boundaries. And finally the way it was active mid way, and then turning extinct.
