Man is Chased by a Crocodile – level 1

18-05-2023 15:00

A man is in a park in Mexico. It is a beautiful park. The man goes for a swim.

A big crocodile appears in the water. The man is in great shock. He starts swimming fast to the shore. The crocodile follows him. The man must escape it!

Some people watch the incident. One of them has a good idea. He or she throws something big in the water. This makes the crocodile stop.

Difficult words: appear (come), shore (land along the water), escape (to get away from something).

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

What object did the person throw in the water to distract the crocodile?
