Bear Climbs a Tall Pole – level 1

21-07-2022 15:00

In Canada, two birds build a nest. They build it on top of a very tall tower. It is 30 metres tall! The tower has power cables all over it. A bear sees the nest. It wants to look in it. The bear climbs the tower! This is dangerous.

The birds peck at the bear. The bear does not stop until it gets to the top.

A woman films the bear. It comes back down. It calmly walks away.

Difficult words: nest (a thing made out of sticks that birds live on), powercables (big wires that have electricity in them), peck (to bite quickly).

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

What do you think about this bear?
