Lava Goes to the sea – level 1

09-08-2016 07:00

In Hawaii, USA, a volcano erupts. Its lava moves six miles to the Pacific Ocean. The lava goes into the sea. In the water, the lava’s color changes from red to dark red and black.

People say that the lava is not making problems for towns. But people need to stay away. Some tourists still get near it. They want to see it and take pictures.

Difficult words: erupt (explode), lava (a hot, red liquid that comes out of the ground).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Have you ever seen lava?
