Crop circle in Germany – level 2

04-08-2014 07:00

People discovered a crop circle in Germany. Word of the circles spread quickly on the Internet. Thousands of people came to the field to see it for themselves.

The circle is formed of three rings and has a diameter of 75 metres. One woman thinks that an UFO didn’t create the circle. She only thinks that there are things on Earth which people don’t know about.

The farmer was glad that some people took off their shoes before entering the field. He also put down a box. If somebody damages his crops, they can give him money.

Difficult words: crop (plant which is grown for food), diameter (line from side to side of a circle).

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

What do you think created the ring?
