Loch Ness Monster – level 1

06-12-2021 15:00

Loch Ness is a lake in Scotland. People say that a monster lives in the lake. They call the monster Nessie. Many tourists visit the lake. They hope to see Nessie.

Nobody knows if Nessie is real. Scientists want to know. They want to take 300 water samples. They filter organic material from the water.

From the organic material, they get DNA. They study the DNA. They compare it with other DNA.

Difficult words: sample (a small part of something), organic (from living things like animals or plants, not like rocks), DNA (the information about living things), compare (look at two things and see if they are similar).

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