Big Sandcastle in Germany – level 2

09-09-2016 15:00

For weeks, international artists worked on a huge sandcastle in Germany. Unfortunately, it had problems. Parts of the castle came down after just one week, but the team decided to carry on.

Visitors came to see the castle being built and judged by the Guinness World Record officials. The officials confirmed that the current record stood at 13.97 metres and the new sandcastle measured in at 14.15 metres.

However, there was a problem. The artists forgot parts of wood in the castle which they used during the build. Since a sandcastle can consist only of sand and water, they did not set a new world record.

Difficult words: huge (very big), confirm (say that something is true), consist (be made of).
