White humpback whale – level 1

13-08-2015 07:00

This news is from Australia. People see a whale. It is a white humpback whale. It swims in the ocean, and people watch it. The whale does not mind the people.

Up to 5,000 humpback whales migrate every year. They move from the Antarctic to warm waters. There, they eat and have babies.

Difficult words: humpback whale (a type of whale), mind (if you mind something, you do not like; it makes you feel bad), migrate (to move a long way).

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

Have you ever seen a whale?
