Excursion to Tufia!

Posted: February 23, 2014 in FUNNY ACTIVITIES

Hi everyone,

Here are some photos from our excursion on Friday with 2ºESO. We went on an ecological walk along the coast from Tufia to Ojas de Garza. The students learnt about the endemic plants, lichen, birds and animals of Gran Canaria. These studies will be continued in the lab and the students have to write a report for Jose Caballero.
We were also shown around some ancient Canarian settlement in Tufia. We all had a lovely time and the weather was fantastic!

Hello everyone,

These weeks my fifth graders are working on adjectives, comparatives and superlatives. It’s still a bit hard to form both. I found the link below which help them understand better the correct use and structure. You can find the same content for different levels.

In addition, I attach another link to practice on line the content afterwards.
