Antonia's Swimming Paragraph


This is a paragraph to explain what we thought swimming means. Listen as Antonia explains.

Swimming is when a person goes into a body of water and tries to stay afloat. Or sometimes it's just for fun. A body of water is a swimming pool, a beach, a lake and a blow up pool too.
