Baby elephant at Berlin Zoo - level 1
An elephant is born at Berlin Zoo. The baby is a girl. She is 100 kilograms heavy. That is not much for a baby elephant. It is because she is born early. She does not have a name yet.
She is an Asian elephant. There are seven Asian elephants at the zoo. There are six African elephants, too.
Asian elephants are endangered. People kill them. People destroy the places where the elephants live.
Difficult words: be born (when a baby leave its mother’s body and starts its life), endangered (in danger – there are not many of them).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
