Ice Rink with Dead Fish – level 1

05-12-2016 15:00

In Japan, a theme park named Space World makes an ice rink. It puts 5,000 real dead fish inside the ice. The park wants to teach people about ocean animals. The fish are frozen in designs. There are 25 types of fish.

People are very angry. They say that the ice rink is terrible. They boycott the park.

Space World is going to take out the ice rink. It is going to hold a service for the dead fish.

Difficult words: boycott (when people do not spend money or go to a business), service (a religious event to show respect for something).

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