Radiation at a children’s park - level 1

Radiation at a children’s park - level 1

28-04-2015 07:00

It is 2015. The Fukushima disaster was in 2011. That is four years ago. Some people are afraid of radiation. They measure the radiation around their houses.

One man measures high radiation. He measures it at a children’s park. He tells people about it. Now the children’s park is closed.

This park is 155 miles (249 kilometres) from Fukushima. The radiation at the park is probably not from Fukushima.

Difficult words: disaster (something very bad, like an accident), radiation (a form of energy which is dangerous), measure (to find the amount/level of something).

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