Ahmed’s clock - level 1

23-09-2015 07:00

This news is about a teenager. He is from Texas. His name is Ahmed Mohamed. He is Muslim.

The boy makes a clock. The clock is in a suitcase. It looks a little like a bomb.

He brings the clock to school. Teachers think that it is a bomb. They call the police. The police arrest Ahmed.

People hear about this story. They support Ahmed. Barack Obama invites him to the White House.

Difficult words: suitcase (a box where you put your things when you travel), arrest (to take to the police station), support (to help by saying or doing something nice).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
