Israel’s Tallest Lego Tower – level 3

05-01-2018 15:00

In Tel Aviv, Israel, a group won the world record for the tallest Lego tower, which the group built for a local Lego-loving boy who died of cancer, as his teachers wanted a memorial for him. One man explained that each side of the tower is 35.92 metres tall and the tower is similar to a 12-storey building.

Thousands of people from Tel Aviv helped build the structure out of 0.5 million Lego bricks. The mayor said that it was a community effort to build this tower with everyone participating, including Jews, Arabs, rich and poor people, and Orthodox and secular people.

People sent drone footage of the tower to the Guinness Book of Records for verification.

Difficult words: memorial (a building or object that people make to remember someone), community effort (when many people from a place work together), Orthodox (very religious), secular (not religious), verification (proving something).
