Good question! I don't know if anyone has counted them!! I found this article about the "Ring of Fire"on Encyclopedia Britannica Elementary Edition (it's in the VLC, Virtual Resources page)
(If it asks for a log-in & password, they are on your VLC bookmark. If you don't have one, pick one up from your LCI.)
Take a look at this website - there's a good map or the whole ring of fire area and an explaination of why it's a big area for volcanoes and where some of the major volcanoes are.
I found this map on Wikepedia when I searched "ring of fire volcanoes". These are just the volcanoes in Indonesia -- there are a lot!!
I had fun looking this up and learning something new! Maybe we should make a box of this on your pen pal page! Let me know if you need more info.
Have a great day and see you soon!!
PS - have you read this book? I'll see if I can get it for our Learning Commons!
