Sheep make a heart – level 2

03-09-2021 15:00

Ben Jackson from Australia got the news that his beloved aunt died. It was not possible to travel to her funeral because of the coronavirus, and Jackson was very sad.

The farmer was feeding his sheep when he got an interesting idea. He put grains in the shape of a heart in his field. Then, he let his sheep in the field, and they filled up the heart. Jackson filmed the sheep by drone, and he sent the video to his family.

Jackson made some similar artworks before, and his aunt loved them. He thought that the sheep heart would make her happy.

Many families could not meet during the pandemic. People could not go to weddings or funerals, so Jackson was glad that he found a way to say goodbye to someone he loved.

Difficult words: beloved (very loved), funeral (a special ceremony which people hold when somebody dies), grain (a seed of some grasses or other plants which people grow in fields).

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