Iceland is known as the country of ‘The Land of Fire and Ice’. That is because it has both glaciers and volcanoes can be found all around the island. Iceland contains about 200 volcanoes, and more than 10% of Iceland is covered by glaciers. There are also several large volcanic lava fields, with fossilized lava covered in moss. When our son was on third grade he was studying at school about volcanoes, fossils, rocks and minerals, and we took him on a trip to Iceland to see the unqie landscape and the rock and lava formations.
