Old spiders move - level 2

Old spiders move - level 2

If you are afraid of spiders, this news might scare you, a little… Scientists brought ancient spiders back to life by using 3D graphics.

The scientists studied fossils and worked out how the spiders moved. A special computer programme then created a video of the spiders. You can see how the spiders walked.

These spiders lived on Earth 410 million years ago, and they hunted insects. Today’s spiders developed from them.

Difficult words: a little (you might be a little bit afraid), ancient (very old), develop (to change from something to something).

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

Do you have spiders at home? What do you do with them?
