Glaciers in Argentina - level 2

Glaciers in Argentina - level 2

17-03-2016 15:00

The White Giant is one of Argentina’s biggest tourist attractions. It is a 29-kilometre long river of ice. It is home to more than 200 glaciers, and it is the largest continental ice extension in the world after Antarctica.

There is a glacier which sheds ice about every four years, and large numbers of people come to watch the show.

Around 4 thousand people recently watched the roof of an ice tunnel fall. It was quite something.

Difficult words: glacier (a big piece of ice that is floating in water), extension (the area with the ice), shed (to let fall off).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you have glaciers where you live?
