Glaciers in Argentina – level 2

02-11-2023 15:00

The White Giant is one of Argentina’s biggest tourist attractions. It is a 29-kilometre long river of ice. It is home to more than 200 glaciers, and it is the largest continental ice extension in the world after Antarctica.

There is a glacier which sheds ice about every four years, and large numbers of people come to watch the show.

Around 4 thousand people recently watched the roof of an ice tunnel fall. It was quite something.

Difficult words: glacier (a big piece of ice that is floating in water), extension (the area with the ice), shed (to let fall off).

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

What environmental impacts can the White Giant have on its surrounding areas?
