Frozen food helps hot animals - level 2

Frozen food helps hot animals - level 2

23-01-2015 15:00

Temperatures rose up to 48°C in Brazil this summer, and animals in a zoo in Rio de Janeiro felt the heat. The heat made them tired and not very active.

The zoo came up with a great way to cool off its 2700 animals. Now all the food for the animals comes in blocks of ice. Every day people deliver around two tonnes of the frozen food. Some of the frozen foods are watermelons and mangos.

The cold food refreshes the animals and helps them be more active.

Difficult words: come up with something (to have an idea to do something), cool off (to make less hot), refresh (to give energy).
