Ten Injured by Etna – level 1

21-03-2017 15:00

Etna is a volcano. It is active. It is in Italy. People visit the volcano. They are scientists and tourists.

There is some lava. The lava hits some snow. Since lava is hot and snow is cold, this makes an explosion. Ten people are in the explosion. Six people go to hospital.

Difficult words: volcano (a mountain which can explode or send out lava), scientist (a clever person who is an expert at something), lava (hot red stuff that looks like water that comes out of some volcanoes).

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