Why do volcanos errupt?
The volcanic chamber underneath the volcano produces the hot lava and when is too hot, the chamber sends an outburst of lots of lava and volcanic bombs (which are hot, hard, lava). If the volcano is strong enough, the lava comes out of the top of the volcano and runs down the sides. The lava cools down as it goes down and so the lava that is left to cool on the volcano, forms another layer to the volcano and increases the size it the volcano. This is how volcanoes errupt and then increase in size. Hope this helps :)
