World Giraffe Day – level 3

27-06-2018 07:00

If you live in the northern hemisphere, June 21st is the date with the longest day of the year, and if you live in the southern hemisphere, it is the longest night.

To raise awareness of the longest-necked animals, giraffes, people celebrate the date as the World Giraffe Day. Giraffes are the world’s tallest terrestrial animals and can grow to around six metres in height. They eat mainly plant leaves and buds.

Difficult words: hemisphere (the northern or southern half of the planet), raise awareness (spread information, teach people), terrestrial (land), bud (a thing on a plant from which a leaf later grows).
