Can Schools Open Again? – level 1

15-07-2020 07:00

A few months ago, schools around the world close. The reason is the coronavirus. Now, schools are opening again. However, some parents worry. They do not know if schools are safe for their children.

In the US, the situation is different in each state. Many people are sick with COVID-19 in some cities. These are cities such as Houston, Miami, and Phoenix.

Schools get information from the government. However, some information is not clear. Every school is different. Every school can understand some rules differently. Some schools can have outdoor classes. Some schools can use a large gym as a classroom. However, it is not always possible.

Children in schools need fresh air. Schools must use fans to get enough fresh air for children.

Difficult words: rule (what people must do), gym (a large room where people do sports), fan (a machine that moves and it makes the air fresh and cool).

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