Wooly mammoth in Michigan - level 2

08-10-2015 07:00

A farmer from Michigan was digging in his soy field when he made an amazing discovery. He found a wooly mammoth skeleton.

Experts from the University of Michigan soon took control of the site. They said that the mammoth was an adult male, probably in its forties. It probably lived between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago.

One student from the university found a piece of a stone tool. People also found three large boulders near the skeleton. People probably killed the mammoth.

Difficult words: site (a place), tool (a thing which is used for something), boulder (a large piece of rock).

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