Spiders in Greece – level 1

01-10-2018 07:00

Thousands of spiders make a very large web. It is 300 metres long. It is in western Greece. There are so many spiders because there are more mosquitoes.

The web is beautiful. It is also a little scary. It covers trees and boats. The spiders are mating under the web. However, cool weather is coming. It will kill the spiders.

The spiders are small. They are not dangerous to people.

Difficult words: mosquito (a flying insect which can bite you and suck your blood), mate (make baby spiders), will (in the future).

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