The Earth’s surface is constantly changing. Some events cause fast changes like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Other changes can be very slow like erosion.

Volcanos change the Earth’s surface very quickly.
When volcanoes erupt, hot lava is released from inside the Earth. As it cools and hardens, rock is formed and that can change the shape of the land.
