Which is correct - "look up words in the dictionary" or "look words up in the dictionary"?


I teach a special ed. reading program.  I think one of the exercises in the workbook is wrong.  We are working with phrasal verbs - look up, throw away, turn over, etc.  The sentences in the exercise have the two parts separated. An example is: "Throw the trash out."  I think it should be "Throw out the trash."  Which is correct or does it matter?
