This news is from Michigan. Michigan is a state in the USA.

A farmer is in his field. He is digging. He finds something. It is a skeleton of a wooly mammoth.

Experts from a university come. They take out the skeleton.

The skeleton is 10,000 to 15,000 years old. The mammoth was a male. It was around 40 years old when it died.

There are big pieces of rock near the mammoth. People killed the mammoth with the rocks.

Difficult words: dig (to make space in the ground; to move the earth), skeleton (all the bones in a body), was (past of “is”), male (man, not woman).

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