Koala Rides on a Wheel – level 1

02-09-2021 15:00

In Australia, a man is driving his car. He drives for 16 kilometres. He stops and hears some noise. He finds a koala inside an arch on his car.

An animal rescue organisation comes. It takes the koala to the vet to help her. Then it brings her back to the wild. She quickly climbs up a tree. She goes to sleep.

Koalas are a vulnerable species. There are not many of them. There are less than 100,000 of them in the wild.

Difficult words: arch (one of the car’s four spaces for the wheels), climb (go up or down), vulnerable species (a type of animal that is in danger of dying out).

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