Crop circle in Germany – level 1

04-08-2014 07:00

This news is from Germany. People find a crop circle. People talk about it on the Internet. Thousands of people come to the field. They want to see the circle.

The circle is 75 metres in diameter. It is made up of three circles. The media asks one woman what she thinks. She doesn’t think that a UFO did this. She says we don’t understand everything on our planet.

Some people take off their shoes when they visit the field. The farmer is happy. He doesn’t want people to damage his crops. If people damage the crops, they can give him money.

Difficult words: crop (plant which people grow for food), diameter (line from side to side of a circle), damage (to break something).

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