Many Bees on a Road – level 3

18-04-2022 15:00

A truck carrying 100 beehives in China was involved in an accident, and the beehives were thrown open and scattered across the lanes.

People sealed off the motorway to protect other drivers while keepers tried to coax the bees back into the hives. Many of the bees returned, but some of the hives were left in the road in hope that the swarms would return overnight.

Difficult words: scatter (to break into many pieces over an area), coax (to make somebody to do something), swarm (a group of insects).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

What would you do if you saw all of these bees?
