02-11-2023 15:00

This news is from Argentina. There is an ice river. It is 29 kilometres long. It is a big tourist attraction. There are 200 glaciers. The only place that has more ice is Antarctica.

One of the glaciers is especially interesting. It sheds ice every four years. It is quite a show. Many people come to watch it.

Difficult words: attraction (something which is interesting so you come to see it), glacier (a big piece of ice), shed (to let fall off).

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

What does the glacier do every four years that cause people to come and watch?
