Orcas in Russia – level 1
Four orcas are in the far east of Russia. They get trapped between ice. People help them. They take a small boat and go to the orcas.
People move the ice. They make space for the orcas. This takes hours. Three orcas get free. One of them is young.
The fourth orca is still trapped. People wait for higher waters. When there’s more water, the orca joins the others.
Difficult words: orca (a big, black and white toothed whale), trapped (not able to move), join (to get to the others, to become part of the group).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
