Amelia Earhart Possibly Found – level 1

16-03-2018 07:00

In 1932, Amelia Earhart flies alone over the Atlantic Ocean. She is the first woman pilot to do this. She has to land partway through her flight. She lands in Northern Ireland.

In 1937, her navigator and she fly over the Pacific Ocean. They go missing. People do not know what happens to them until now.

In 1940, people find a skeleton on a South Pacific island. Now people study this skeleton. They think that the skeleton is Amelia Earhart. They think that she crash-landed on the island and died.

Difficult words: navigator (a person who helps a ship or an aeroplane pilot know where to go), go missing (when a person goes missing, something happens to them, and we do not know where they are and if they are OK), skeleton (all the bones of the body).

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