1001 people in dominoes - level 1, A12

You can’t usually take 1001 mattresses from a shop. But people in Shanghai did it. 1001 people with 1001 mattresses met in a shopping centre. They made dominoes. They wanted to have the world record. The last record was 850 dominoes in America in February.

It was a big show. People had to prepare everything carefully. Organization had to be perfect.

The show took 10 minutes and it was successful.


Words from a higher level: mattress (soft part of a bed), carefully (with a lot of thinking), be successful (do what you wanted to do).
