Israel’s Tallest Lego Tower – level 2

05-01-2018 15:00

In Tel Aviv, Israel, people won the world record after they built the tallest Lego tower. Each side of the tower is 35.92 metres tall and it is similar to a 12-storey building.

Thousands of people helped to build the structure from 0.5 million Lego bricks. The mayor said that many people participated, and this included Jews, Arabs, rich and poor people, and Orthodox and secular people.

People built the tower as a memorial for a local Lego-loving boy who died of cancer.

Difficult words: Orthodox (religious), secular (not religious), memorial (a thing that people make to remember someone).

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