A Whale Wants to Eat Women – level 1

11-11-2020 07:00

It is a calm morning. A group of kayakers are in the waters of California, US. They are watching whales. The whales are about 9 meters away. Then, something crazy happens.

A whale comes out of the water. The animal opens its mouth. Two women in a kayak end up in the animal’s mouth. The animal goes under water.

The animal opens its mouth soon. The two women get out. Their friends help them. They get the women out of the water.

The women are not hurt. They are very lucky. The animal is very strong.

Researchers want to find the whale. They want to make sure that the whale is not hurt.

Difficult words: kayaker (a person who uses a very light narrow boat), whale (a large sea animal), kayak (a light narrow boat with a closed top).

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