Israel’s Tallest Lego Tower – level 1

05-01-2018 15:00

In Israel, people build the tallest Lego tower. They win the world record. The tower is 35.92 metres tall. It is like a 12-storey building.

Thousands of people help build the tower. They use 0.5 million Lego pieces. Everyone helps. Jews, Arabs, rich and poor people, and religious and non-religious people help.

People build the tower as a memorial. It is for a boy who lives there. The boy loves Legos. He gets very sick and dies.

Difficult words: .5 (half), religious (when you believe in God), memorial (a thing that people make to remember a person).

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