READING: CULTURE

1.- Read and listen to the text about the Inuit. How do huskies help them?

HUSKIES: THE INUIT’S BEST FRIEND

For you and me, dogs are pets, but for the Inuit, dogs are essential to their way of life. The Inuit are the native people of the Artic. They live in Alaska, Canada, Greenland and Siberia. They live in very cold climates. The Inuit use husky dogs because they are strong and work hard. Huskies can also survive in very cold conditions.

The Inuit tribe in Alaska live in a traditional way. They depend on animals for food, transport and clothes. In the Arctic there aren’t many vegetables, fruit or cereals, so the Inuit’s basic diet is meat and fish.

The Inuit hunt seals, polar bears and reindeer, and their dogs help them. When they are looking for animals, the tribe travel. They make sledges with animal bones and skin, and teams of huskies pull the sledges. The dogs can go fast and pull heavy sledges over long distances.

Huskies also help to protect the Inuit: they tell them when polar bears are coming. The Inuit love their dogs and can’t live without them!

 

 

2.- Read the text again. Are these sentences true or false? Correct the false sentences.

a) The Inuit depend on their huskies.

b) The Inuit eat a variety of food.

c) They usually hunt two types of animals.

d) Huskies can travel far.
