Whales in Florida - level 1

Whales in Florida - level 1

09-12-2013 14:00

Here is some sad news from Florida. Ten whales get on a beach. They cannot move. They are stuck.

This happens at a national park. Some people work at the park. These people come to help the whales. When they come, four whales are dead. They put water on the 6 whales. The people try really hard to help the whales.

There are other whales. These whales are not on the beach. They are in shallow waters. When the water goes up, they will be OK.

Difficult words: whale (very big animal that lives in the sea), stuck (you are stuck when you cannot move), shallow (not deep).

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