Dinosaur’s Tail in Amber – level 1

14-12-2016 07:00

People find a piece of amber. They find it in northern Myanmar. The amber is 100 million years old.

This find is very important. A piece of a dinosaur’s tail is in the amber. This is the first time that people find dinosaur material like this.

The tail has feathers. The dinosaur looked like a chicken. There are also two ants, pieces of a plant and small bubbles in the amber.

Difficult words: amber (a very old, yellow and hard thing that comes from trees), find noun (something that you find), feather (a very light thing which birds have for flying).

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