Geese on a highway – level 1

14-05-2014 07:00

This happens in the USA. Some geese walk on a motorway. They are walking somewhere. It is a family of geese. There are two big geese and five goslings.

It is not safe. There are a lot of cars. Police close parts of the motorway. The police watch the geese. The geese get to a safe place at the end.

Difficult words: geese (more than one goose), motorway (big road where cars go fast), gosling (young goose).

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

Do you have geese in your country?
