ELEMENTARY - READING 3 (page 1)

As you read the story, think about the answers to these questions.
1. What colour is a Koala's chest?
2. What do Koalas do during the day?

Koalas
'They are usually sleeping'

Koalas are famous Australian animals. They are grey or brown and they have a white chest. They weigh around 10 kilos and they live in trees. Sometimes you can see them on the ground or even swimming, but that is unusual.

They stay awake at night and they sleep during the day. When we see them they are usually sleeping or eating gum leaves.

The mother carries her baby in her pouch (like a pocket on her stomach). When it is older, she carries it on her back.
