Meteorite in Russia - level 1

Meteorite in Russia - level 1

25-10-2013 06:00

A meteorite flies above Russia. The meteorite explodes. Small pieces of it fall everywhere.

People look for the pieces. They have 400 pieces already. Scientists look for the pieces, too. The scientists find a really big piece. The big piece is in a lake. It is not easy to get the piece. It takes a few weeks. It costs a lot of money, too.

This piece may be the biggest. We don't know it for sure. We must wait for special tests.

Difficult words: meteorite (rock from space), explode (change fast into small pieces), scientist (clever person who is an expert in something).

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