Malaysian plane is lost - level 1

17-03-2014 07:00

A Malaysian plane gets lost. Nobody knows where it is. People look for the plane. Twenty planes and forty ships try to find it.

People find something. It looks like a life raft, but it is not. People search a bigger area.

Nobody knows what happened to the plane. Maybe there was a mechanical problem. Maybe there was an explosion on the plane. Many things can go wrong with a plane.

Difficult words: life raft (small boat), search (look for something), explosion (change fast into small pieces).

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