Hawaiian Volcano Destroys Homes – level 1

11-05-2018 15:00

Lava is flowing out of cracks in Hawaii’s volcano. It destroys five homes. Some people do not want to evacuate even though it is dangerous.

One person says that Hawaii is both good and bad. It is good because it is beautiful. It is bad because people live on a volcano that can do this.

Scientists say that there is going to be more lava. However, they do not know where or when it will come.

Difficult words: lava (rock that is hot and liquid like water), volcano (a mountain that has lava inside it and can explode), evacuate (leave because of danger).

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