Fire meets ice in Iceland – level 1

22-01-2015 07:00

Iceland is an island. It is 190 kilometres long and 25 kilometres wide. There is an active volcano there. Lava comes out of it.

Small earthquakes happen every day. People cannot come to the volcano. If something goes wrong, officials will evacuate people.

Difficult words: lava (very hot liquid rock), earthquake (when the earth shakes), evacuate (to send or go away because of something dangerous).

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