New island in Japan - level 1

New island in Japan - level 1

26-11-2013 14:00

This happens in the Pacific Ocean. There is a volcano. It is underwater. The volcano erupts.

The volcano creates a new island. People see this. They make a video. The island is small. It is only 200 metres long. This island has no name. This island can stay above water but it also goes underwater. We must wait to see it.

This island is not alone. It is in a group of small islands. There are 6,000 islands in this area but only this island is new.

Difficult words: volcano (mountain which sends up very hot things), erupt (when hot things come from a volcano).

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