Police Help Ducks – level 1

30-12-2022 15:00

Police stop cars on a busy road in Moscow, Russia. The police want to help ducks. The ducks try to cross the road. There are two ducks and 12 ducklings.

Other people help the police. They guide the ducks across the road. Drivers must wait. The ducks get to the other side of the road. They walk to a park.

Ducks and swans live in ponds and lakes. People like to feed the ducks with bread. However, bread is not good for ducks.

Ducks and swans want food from people. Due to this, ducks and swans cannot find food themselves. It is a problem. Many people must stay at home because of the coronavirus. Ducks and swans are very hungry.

Difficult words: duckling (a baby duck), guide (to help somebody find the right way), swan (a large white bird with a long neck).

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