Whale in Australia – level 1

Whale in Australia – level 1

27-09-2016 07:00

A whale gets caught in a fishing net. This happens in Queensland, Australia. The whale is in shallow water. It cannot move.

People help the whale. They cut the net.

The whale is free. The tide rises. The whale swims away. It is OK.

Difficult words: shallow (not deep – there is only a little water), tide (how the ocean water goes up and down because of the moon and sun), rise (go up).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
