Lego Christmas tree – level 1

14-12-2015 07:00

Legoland makes a Christmas tree. It is eight metres tall. It is made from only Lego pieces.

It takes 50 hours to design the tree. It takes weeks to build the tree.

On top of the tree, there is a fairy. It is made from 4,000 Lego pieces. It is 6.5 kilograms heavy.

Difficult words: piece (a small thing), design (to make on paper), fairy (a small person who can do magic – something special).

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

Do you already have your Christmas tree?
