  • Level 1: Cells
  • Level 2: Tissues
  • Level 3: Organs
  • Level 4: Systems
  • Level 5: Body

Thinking about my learning

It is time to reflect about your learning today. Remind that everyday at the end of each lesson you will write on your Learning Diary asking the following questions:

  • What problems did I have? How did I solve these problems?
  • What have I learn?
  • How can I improve my learning for the next lesson?
  • Do I want to learn a bit more about something?

Your teacher will check it and give to you some feedback to help your improvements.
