1. Acceder a la página web de la editorial:
2. Una vez en la página deberéis buscar "new user" y pinchar en: Register here.

Cells, tissues, organs and systems

Today we have focussed on cells, tissues, organs and systems. We have studied these areas, exploring the differences between types of cells, and seeing how they join together to form tissues, organs and systems. We have learnt about their functions and how all living things are made up of units which interact with each other.

Hi fifth graders!!!
This year we are going learn IDIOMS.
An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not predictable from the usual meaning of its words.
This is the first idiom we will learn this week:
Sample Poster from "IDIOM POSTERS: Wonderful Words for Writing Workshop (Set of 17 Posters) $:
An example of this expresion:
 I had butterflies in my tummy the morning of my wedding.

You can also say: to have butterflies in my stomach. 
We use this expresion when we are very nervous.
