Polar bear triplets in Holland – level 1

03-12-2014 07:00

Polar bear triplets are born. They are born in Holland. They are healthy. They are active.

The little bears are with their mother. All of them are in a den. The den is made of snow. People cannot enter it, but they can watch. There is a camera inside the den.

Not all small polar bears survive their first winter. The next few weeks are going to be hard for them.

Difficult words: triplets (three babies which are born at the same time), den (an animal’s hidden home), survive (you live after a hard situation).

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