- What does Daragang Magayon's name mean according to the story? And what instances in the story support this meaning?
- What were Ulap's people called? Why were they called as such?
- Why did Chief Pagtuga feel that Daragang Magayon's father, Chief Makusog, betrayed him after he gave his blessing to the marriage of Ulap and Darangang Magyon?
- Let us find three words to describe an erupting volcano. One of them is that a volcano looks frightening. Can you find two other words?
- Do you see a match between the words we chose and the story of Daragang Magayon? Tell us about them.
- Does it make sense to you that the legend of Mayon Volcano came from Mangayon’s story? In what way does it make sense to you?
