Antelopes in a river - level 1

Antelopes in a river - level 1

09-08-2013 14:00

There are many antelopes in Tibet. Every summer, they move. It is a big thing.

They travel thousands of kilometres. They move to a place where they can have babies safely. But their way is not safe.

They must go into a river. Many antelopes go into the water but they don't get out. They turn back. There are predators on the other side of the river. They are waiting for the antelopes.

Difficult words: antelope (animal that can run very fast), travel (move), predator (animal that eats other animals).

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