Star Wars Day in the WH – level 2

12-05-2016 15:00

People refer to May 4th as Star Wars Day because of the saying, “May the 4th be with you”. People from across the globe celebrated the event on social media. They shared videos and images from the popular film series.

Michelle and Barack Obama celebrated the day, too. Some storm troopers and R2-D2 visited them. They all had fun and danced in the White House.

Difficult words: 4th (“fourth” sounds like “force” – this is a pun, a joke).

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