Star Wars Day in the WH – level 1

Star Wars Day in the WH – level 1

12-05-2016 15:00

May 4th is Star Wars Day. It becomes Star Wars day because of the saying, "May the 4th be with you". People celebrate this day. They put videos and images on social media.

Michelle and Barack Obama celebrate, too. Storm troopers and R2-D2 come to the White House. They all have fun and dance together.

Difficult words: saying (something that people say), May the 4th be with you (“fourth” sounds like “force”, and “May the force be with you” is a famous sentence from the Star Wars movies), celebrate (to do something fun because it’s an important day), storm troopers (soldiers from the Star Wars movies).

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