Hungry Polar Bears – level 1

19-02-2019 07:00

The Arctic ice is melting. This means that the polar bears cannot hunt. They are hungry. They move south to look for food.

Many of them go to a Russian village. They look for food there. They look for it in rubbish dumps. They enter houses and buildings, too.

Polar bears are big and strong. They can be dangerous.

Difficult words: melt (turn from ice to water), hunt (catch other animals to eat; for example fish), rubbish dump (a place for things which people throw away).

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