Panda in Washington – level 1

27-01-2016 07:00

This news is from Washington’s National Zoo. A panda is born there. Its name is Bei Bei.

For the first five months, the panda is with its mother. People cannot see it. Now, they can see the panda for the first time.

People are really excited. They are cheering. The panda is like a rock star.

Difficult words: be born (to leave the mother’s body and start living in this world), excited (happy), cheer (to yell because you are very happy).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
