Koala on a Drilling Rig – level 1
In Adelaide, Australia, a koala goes to a construction site. He climbs up a drilling rig. He likes the new home. He feels safe. However, rescuers take him back down.
The rescuers take his picture. Then they take him to the vet to make sure that he is OK.
Difficult words: construction site (a place where people are building a house or a road, for example), drilling rig (a machine for drilling – making a hole in the ground), rescuer (a person who rescues somebody – saves them from danger).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
