Cold Treats for Animals – level 1

18-07-2017 07:00

In Rome, it is summertime. It is very hot. Zookeepers at a zoo want to help the animals cool down. They give them ice-cold treats. One animal eats ice with fruit inside. A tiger eats an ice lolly that tastes like meat.

Zoo doctors say that the animals like the treats. The treats are also good for the animals’ health.

Difficult words: ice-cold (very cold), treat (some tasty food), taste (feel in the mouth).

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