Natural Science 6 – 04/06 Answer Key

Good morning, everyone.

Me vais a permitir que arranque esta publicación con unas palabras en español. Ayer os advertí que el jueves de la semana próxima haremos el control de la unidad 9, sin recordar que ese día es, técnicamente, no lectivo (se celebra la festividad del Corpus Christi). Por ese motivo, vamos a obrar de la siguiente manera. Yo programaré la publicación del jueves próximo como hago habitualmente y configuraré el test para que el jueves esté totalmente operativo. En condiciones normales sería obligatorio que contestarais las preguntas ese mismo día, pero en este caso aceptaré vuestras respuestas también si lo cumplimentáis el viernes. Así que ya sabéis, control del tema 9 en Educaplay accesible los días 11 y 12.

A trabajar.
