Rarely do volcanologists get to watch the birth, growth, and death of a volcano. Paricutin provided such an opportunity. Paricutin is a cinder cone volcano located in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. The volcano erupted on 20th February 1943, and continued to be active till 1952, during which it destroyed the villages of Parícutin and San Juan Parangaricutiro.
Dionisio Pulido and his wife Paula witnessed the volcanoes birth. Using the information given, the students are tasked to write their memories about that extraordinary day from the Mexicans point of view.
