People are on a ship. They go to the Antarctic. It happens in November.

The ship gets stuck in ice. It cannot move. The 52 people must be on the ship. They must be saved.

They are on the ship for one week. They spend Christmas and New Year there. Rescue workers get to them. It is not easy. There are strong wind, ice and snow.

The people on the ship upload a video. They sing a song. They welcome the New Year.

Difficult words: stuck (cannot move), rescue worker (person who saves people), upload (put on the internet).

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