It is very hot in South Korea. It is 35 degrees Celsius. Animals at one zoo are hot. The zookeepers freeze their food. They give them the food in ice.

Elephants have big blocks of ice with fruit. They also eat iced watermelons. After they have lunch, they have a cold shower.

The tigers eat frozen meat.

People like watching the animals eat the iced food.

Difficult words: zookeeper (a person who helps animals at a zoo), freeze (to turn to ice), block (a square piece).

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

Is it hot in your country, too?
