Japanese eat whale - level 2
Japanese whalers caught their sixth whale this season. They carved the 30-foot-long (9 metres) whale was in front of children. The children were on a field trip. The whalers gave free samples of its meat.
The event takes place every year in a town south of Tokyo. Some people are against whaling, but Japan says that it is an important tradition.
Difficult words: carve (cut into pieces), sample (small amount of something).
