        If You Were: hippopotamus

        This video segment from Between the Lions is a live action, non-fiction piece about what life would be like "if you were a hippopotamus." Hippopotamuses are born in Africa, in a river, under water. They live in big families called a pods, eat 100 pounds of grass each night, and weigh about 7000 pounds when they're all grown up. When it comes to protecting their pods and their part of the river, they are tough. The vocabulary term "pod" is explained. This video segment provides a resource for Text Comprehension, Vocabulary, and Language and Vocabulary Development.

        This media asset comes from the Between the Lions episode: "Mole and the Baby Bird & Owen and Mzee."
