Phrasal verbs
Dear teachers,
I need help with these sentences. How would you correct them?

Unfortunately, I have to call off our appointment because I am down with headache.

While all residents were slipping, the fire broke out.

My child broke into me during the philharmonic concert.

He would like to carry on this experiment if she is participating.

Linda is going to shopping because her clothes are out.

Thank you very much for your help.

1. I wouldn´t use ´down with a headache´ and I´ve passed it by some friends; it´s not something we would say in the UK. So, it´s 
I have to …………….. because I´ve got a headache. (I think in the UK, we use the indefinite article, but it´s not wrong to leave it out).
2. It would be better to rearrange the order. ´The fire broke out while all the residents were asleep/sleeping´.
3. I don´t know what this is supposed to mean....
4. as Mariec´s suggestion.
5. As Mariec.

number 4 could also be "carry out the experiment"
Number 1 might also be "I have come down with a headache"
number 3 could be anything!!   turned up,  called me up,

Agree with dawnmain, although you usually come down with a cold or the flu, rather than an ache of any kind.
