Penguins Play with a Camera – level 1

11-10-2021 15:00

In Antarctica, an expeditioner visits a rookery. He has a video camera. He leaves it on the ice.
Two penguins find the camera. They look down at it. They are curious. They look like they pose for selfies.

Difficult words: expeditioner (someone who goes on a trip), rookery (a place where animals have their babies), curious (want to know more about something), selfie (when you look at a camera to take a picture of yourself).

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