Elephants like music - level 1

Elephants like music - level 1

18-06-2015 15:00

This happens at a zoo. The zoo is in Belgium. People want to play music in the zoo. They do not know if this is safe. They do not know if elephants are OK with music.

People test the elephants. Two violinists play to them. The elephants are not worried – they like the music. They even move from side to side to the music.

Someone films the elephants. He uploads the video on the internet. Many people watch it.

Difficult words: violinist (a person who plays the violin), worry (to feel sad and afraid).

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

Do you know other animals that like music?
