Speed Reading — Level 1 — 200 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

The toy maker Lego said it will no longer continue its $110 million partnership with the oil company Shell. Lego made toys with the Shell logo on them. Shell sold the toys in its gas stations. Lego decided this after Greenpeace made a video using Lego bricks. It showed Lego people and animals covered in oil after an oil spill. At the end, oil covered everything, except a Shell flag. The video is now Greenpeace's most-watched video in its history.

Over a million people asked Lego to stop working with Shell. Greenpeace was very happy that Lego stopped. It said: "Thanks a million, Lego….We're super happy Lego has finally decided to do the right thing." Lego said it did not want people to think it was bad. It said Greenpeace should speak to Shell. Shell was going to drill in the Arctic last year but stopped because of problems. It does not know if it will drill in 2015.

Back to the Greenpeace and Lego lesson.
