New Land in Hawaii – level 2

11-06-2018 07:00

Kilauea volcano is on the Island of Hawaiʻi, the biggest of the Hawaiian Islands. The volcano erupted last month and lava is coming out of it.

The volcano is a danger on the island. We do not know when the eruption will end. The lava flow came into contact with Hawaii’s largest freshwater lake and vaporised it in hours. The lava left behind a jagged landscape.

When the lava flow came into contact with the ocean, it formed a mile of new land. Any new land which formed in the national park belongs to the state.

Difficult words: lava flow (a river of lava), vaporise (turn into vapour/steam – water which is gas), jagged (spiky, rough, sharp).
