It’s raining spiders - level 1
Some spiders live on the ground. If it rains a lot, these spiders leave. They climb plants. They climb trees. They jump from the trees or the plants. Their web silk comes out. They fly with it. We call this ballooning. This happens a lot. Only some spiders do this at one time.
However, thousands of spiders ballooned from somewhere. They rained on a town. This was in Australia. They covered everything with their webs. The webs looked like mounds. It looked scary.
Difficult words: climb (to go up), web silk (the silver stuff that comes from of a spider), mound (a hill).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
