Boats Make Art – level 1

10-05-2021 07:00

Boats make a line across Lake Geneva, Switzerland. They do this for an art project. They make a line across 59 kilometers. It is on the border between France and Switzerland.

The leader of the project says that the project shows that the border is stupid. He says that nobody wants to draw a line on the water.

Small and big boats are in the event. There are more than 250 boats in the event.

Difficult words: border (a line between two countries), draw (to make a picture with a pen), event (a moment when something big or important happens).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
