New continent near Brazil - level 1

Scientists found a special hard rock in the Atlantic Ocean. This rock is special because it is usually on the ground, not in the ocean. People think that a continent was there in the past.

People found a big piece of this rock 900 metres under the ocean. The rock was ten metres high. They also found sand. This type of sand is not typical for oceans but the scientists only looked. They took nothing for testing.

So other scientists will come and they will do more work.

Interesting words: scientist (clever person who is an expert in something), found (“find” in the past).

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