People save a whale in Argentina – level 1

02-08-2016 07:00

In Argentina, a whale has a big problem. It beaches on the coast. It is very big. It cannot move. It stays like this for more than 24 hours.

People try to help the whale. They wait for the tide to rise. They try to use a rope to move the whale. Then they try to use a hose to pull the whale. They pull it to deeper water.

The tide is not very high. But the whale can swim. It can swim away. It looks like it waves when it swims away.

Difficult words: beach (stop on a beach), tide (the water in the ocean that can go up or down) rise (go up), wave (move your hand to say goodbye).

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