Frozen Pants Challenge – level 1

17-02-2021 07:00

The weather in the US is very cold now. Strong winds from the north bring cold air. The temperature can be -30 degrees Celsius. Several people already die this winter.

Many people still want to enjoy the winter. The frozen pants challenge starts. People put their pants in water. Then, they hang them outside. It is so cold that the pants freeze quickly. Then, people stand them up.

Some people use pajamas or hockey uniforms. One man stands up a police uniform next to his car. Social media is full of funny pictures of these pants. If it is cold outside, you can try the frozen pants challenge, too.

Difficult words: temperature (how warm or cold something is), challenge (a task which many people do), pajamas (clothes which people sleep in).

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