The day the first national park was established – level 1


Yellowstone is a beautiful place. In 1805, the first Europeans come to this area. They like the beautiful country.

More and more Europeans come. It is a big problem for the Indians who live there. The Indians die in fights or they must go away. After one hundred years, all the Indians are gone from Yellowstone.

In 1870, one writer visits the area. After his return, he says that the beautiful area needs protection.

Then the President of the USA also comes to see beautiful Yellowstone. After his visit, Yellowstone becomes a national park. It is on March 1, 1872. It is the first national park in the world.

Today, people can see many animals in the park. For example, the grizzly bear, black bear, coyote, and bison live there. Three million tourists visit the park every year.

Difficult words: fight (a situation when people attack other people), gone (away), protection (a situation when something is protected), become (to start to exist).

What problem did the Europeans bring to Yellowstone?
