Young Shark in Sydney – level 1

15-09-2017 07:00

A shark washes up on a beach in Sydney, Australia. It is a young Great White Shark. People save it. They move it to a seawater swimming pool.

People must not swim in the pool when the shark is there. However, many people come to have a look at the shark.

The shark stays in the pool for a week. People study it. They want to know why it washed up shore. The shark could be injured or have an infection.

Difficult words: wash up (get on land and not be able to move back into the sea), washed up (‘wash up’ in the past), could (can).

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