Rice Paper – level 1

01-10-2019 15:00

Rice grows in Egypt. After the harvest, people burn the straw. One organisation takes some straw. It makes paper from it.

The people in the organisation use an old Chinese method. It is 5,000 years old. They burn less straw. This is better for the air in Cairo. The activity also gives people jobs. Deaf people make the paper. They also make things from the paper.

Difficult words: harvest (the time when people get the plants from the field because it is ready), straw (the long thin part of a plant), deaf people (deaf people cannot hear)

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
