Why Kilauea Is So Active
By Hazel Blythe
There once was a volcano called Kilauea, it was one of the worlds most active volcanoes. This volcano was home was to a little baby dragon that lived inside the volcano. The baby dragon lived all alone because it ran away from its mother. Since the baby dragon was inside the volcano, whenever it released fire, it came out the volcano. One day, the baby dragon got sick. The dragon kept sneezing out fire out the volcano. The dragon lived by itself so it didn’t know how to treat a cold. Since it didn’t know how to treat a cold, it stayed sick. Ever since, whenever the dragon sneezes, lava comes out of the volcano. The dragon learned to never abandon something you might need later in life.
