Big shark in Philippines - level 1

10-09-2013 06:00

A young shark in the Philippines dies. People see it and they bring it on land.

The shark's body looks good. There are no injuries on it. We don't know why the shark died. People want to know. They move the shark to a laboratory. The shark is long and heavy. People must use a big car. The shark is 22 feet (6.7 metres) long.

Clever people open the shark in the laboratory. They look inside the shark. Something bad could be in there. Something that can kill sharks.

Difficult words: injury (problem with body), laboratory (special room for test).

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