Cardboard boat – level 1
Can you build a boat from cardboard? You don’t think so? Well, two men from England say that you can!
They take 300 old boxes. They make a boat. They have life jackets, a small outboard, and a flag. They make the flag from bubble wrap.
They put the boat into the River Thames. Everything is fine.
Difficult words: cardboard (the strong paper from which boxes are made), outboard (an outboard motor – a machine which moves the boat), bubble wrap (plastic material which is used to cover things for protection).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
