Exercise and get a free ticket - level 1
Mexico has a problem. Its people are fat. Around 37 million Mexicans are fat.
The government wants to help these people. It puts 30 health stations in Mexico City. If you walk to one health station, it tells you to squat. When you squat, it tells you how to be healthy. When you do 10 squats, you get a free ticket! You can use this ticket, for example, on a bus.
Why are so many Mexicans fat? The government says that it is because of bad food and drinks.
Difficult words: government (the bosses of a country), health (your health is good when your body and mind are good), squat (to get down).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Would you do 10 squats for a free ticket?
