Scientists meet a sperm whale – level 1

23-04-2015 15:00

Scientists are in the Gulf of Mexico. They are researching.

They have a submarine robot. This submarine is 600 metres below the surface. A sperm whale comes close to the submarine. The submarine films the whale. The scientists are happy to see the whale.

Sperm whales are intelligent. They are curious, too.

Difficult words: research (to study something), submarine (a machine which can move under the water), curious (when you want to know about things).

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