The beautiful state of Hawai’i is made out of islands and is home to a great culture. It is also the northernmost of all the islands of Polynesia and the only US state located in Oceania. Hawai’i is made up almost entirely of volcanoes due to a phenomenon called hotspots where the earth’s crust moves around on top of a molten lava tunnel. So as the earth keeps moving, there are new volcanic islands made on the crust as the lava keeps pushing forward. There are currently eight islands in Hawai’I, and more are predicted to come to life.
