Disney characters in ice – level 1

21-11-2014 15:00

A festival takes place in Belgium. There are sculptures at this festival. These sculptures are made of ice. They look like characters from Disney movies. For example, you can see characters from the films Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and the Lion King.

People used four hundred tonnes of water. People make the sculptures for five weeks. When the festival is over, the sculptures will turn into water.

Difficult words: take place (happen), sculpture (a 3D model of a person or an animal), character (a person or an animal in a film).

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