         You have just been hired by the Anchorage, Alaska city officials to research volcanoes.  Anchorage lies along the ring of fire.  The ring of fire is the area around the Pacific Ocean that is known for frequent seismic activity. You will need to be aware of how volcanoes form, why they erupt, and what kind of damage they cause. After researching, your job will be to educate city residents about the dangers of volcanoes and how they can prepare for an eruption.

Nice introduction and set up of story line


A nice addition would have been a glossary—terms like seismic activity, eruption and any other challenging terms
