Kay-leigh's insight:

Volcanoes are mainly formed by the movement of tectonic plates on the earths surface.The tectonic plates float around on mantle , these plates will either moves towards each other , away from each other or one will sink well the other one rises. When the tectonic plates sinks into the mantle that the rock will melt. This molten rock will slowly start to build up to the earths surface when it reach the earth surface its knowen as lava but as that lave starts to build up it forms a volcanoe.
