Giant supermoon – level 1

18-08-2014 15:00

Something interesting happens in the sky. You can watch it at night. You can watch it from any place on earth. Yes, we are talking about the “supermoon.”

Sometimes, the moon gets closer to earth. When it is very close, we can see the supermoon. The supermoon looks bigger than the normal moon.

Difficult words: earth (planet we live on), moon (white rock that is next to our planet), normal (what we see all of the time).

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

Did you watch the supermoon?
