Many bees on a road - level 2

Many bees on a road - level 2

19-03-2015 15:00

A truck is carrying millions of bees in their beehives and the truck gets into an accident on a motorway in China. The beehives scatter across the motorway and the bees fly out.

While the beekeepers get some of the bees to go back to the truck, the police close the motorway to keep other drivers safe. The keepers leave some of the hives in the road because they hope that the bees will return to the hives during the night.

Difficult words: beehive (a home for bees that the bees make), scatter (to break up), beekeeper (a person who takes care of bees).

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