People help a shark – level 1

21-07-2015 15:00

A shark tries to catch seagulls. He is a great white shark, but he is young. He is two metres long.

He is in shallow water. He gets stuck on the beach. He must get back to the deep water. People help him. They put water on him. They move him back to the sea.

Difficult words: seagull (a medium grey or white bird which lives near the sea), shallow (small; not deep), stuck (to not be able to move).

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