Glass slide in the air – level 1
A glass slide is opened on the side of a building. The building is the tallest building in LA. The slide is 305 metres above the streets.
People can sit on the slide and slide on it for 14 metres. The slide finishes on the 69th floor.
The glass is only 3 centimetres thick. It is very strong. It can survive a hurricane and even an earthquake.
Difficult words: slide (the thing on which you slide – move down and have fun), survive (live through), earthquake (when the ground moves).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
