Chimp Knocks Down Drone – level 1

14-06-2022 15:00

People make a TV show. They are in the Netherlands. They want video of a zoo. They want video of the chimpanzees at the zoo. They send a drone with a camera. It flies over the chimpanzees.

A chimp sits in a tree. It sees the drone. The chimp has a stick. It hits the drone.
The drone falls down. The camera still records video. The chimp comes to the drone. It picks it up. The chimp looks at the drone. It looks at the camera. Its face is very close to the camera!

Difficult words: drone (a small plane that flies without a person), chimp (short for chimpanzee), record (to make a picture or video of something happening).

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

Why do you think the chimp hit down the drone?
