Name Date Instructions: Read each question carefully and choose the best answer.
1. What are two details that

section titled “Shield Volcanoes”?

mountain slopes and steady,
gentle eruptions.
bShield volcanoes often have
cinder cones and lava domes.
cShield volcanoes are tall,
snow-capped mountains
with explosive eruptions.
dShield volcanoes have craters
with lakes in them.
2. What is the main idea of the
section titled “Cinder Cones
and Lava Domes”?
aSome volcanoes are not
active enough to form large
mountains, but create cinder
cones and lava domes.
3. What volcanic features
sometimes occur inside the
craters of active volcanoes?
acinder cones
blava domes
ccalderas and cinder cones
dcinder cones and lava domes
4. Volcanoes form when
amountain chains create
hot spots
bmagma from deep inside
Earth breaks through
the crust to the surface
cthe pressure from tall
mountains melts rock and
creates pools of magma
drocks grind together and
create earthquakes
bCinder cones erupt only
once, and lava domes
have violent eruptions.
cLava domes often form
in areas with other
volcanic activity.
dCinders pile up around the
vent into cone-shaped hills.
