Description

In our Language class the teacher,Pilar Pando,asked us to write a description where we had been during the holidays including the vocabulary learnt in class and focus on the natural or one persone you have met.

Unknown

We were going for a month and a half.We had already been there but it was like the first time because i didn’t remember very much.I chose New York because i was amazed with the whole city and i considered it perfect.

The place i like the most was te Central park.There the air is pure and you can hear the whisper and murmur of the leaves.Also the screeching of birds that transmit you a feeling of peace and happiness and make you disconect from the noisy city.The trees are from different colors and the grass is very green and you can smell the peculiar smell of the healthy grass.As you walk throw the park on the cobbled paths you can see the difference lagoons and the real dimension of the park.What surprise me the most was that you can see the skycaps and different buildings behind the edges of the park and although you can still watch the blue sky.What i really enjoy of the park, was that it was very tidy and it was not  completely full of persons. Also,what really transmit you peace and a sensation of relaxation was that you didn’t heared the cars or the noise or the small of the city.

All in all, i could say that i would really recommend evrybrody to go to New York because  not only the central park is very beautiful and transmit you peace and nature you can also go over the city and to differents museums and stores.

In the first picture we can see a characteristic of living things:

Nutrition:Taking in nutrients which are organic substances and mineral ions, containing raw materials and energy for growth and tissue repair, absorbing and assimilating them.

and in the second picture we can see two characteristics:

Growth: which is the permanent increase in size and dry mass by an increase in number of cells, cell size, or both.

Reproduction:Progresses that make more of the same kind of organism.

Other characteristics that are not in the pictures are :

Excretion:Removal from organisms of toxic materials, the waste products of metabolism and substances in excess.

Sensitivity, the ability to detect and response.

Movement:An action by an organism or part of an organism that changes position or place.

Respiration:Chemical reactions that break down nutrient molecules in living cells to release energy.
