Elephant learns things in Singapore – level 1

13-06-2016 15:00

This news is from a safari park in Singapore. The safari has elephants. One elephant gives birth to a female calf. This is the first time in 6 years.

The baby elephant is learning how to be an elephant. She eats adult food. She goes on walks with her mother. She loves to take baths.

People do not have a name for the baby elephant now. The safari will show her to people later this month.

Difficult words: female (connected with women), calf (a baby from animals like the elephant).

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