Makes an interesting assessment or enrichment activity.
This activity will have your students creating wild inventions using Latin and Greek Root words. They will choose up to three to mash together in a fun and creative way to create a "functional" invention with a specific purpose based on their meanings! Very fun and engaging. Students love this activity!
* Also includes a prefix and suffix activity where they add to modify their invention and must write and draw about how it changes their invention based on the meaning.

I have seen some amazing inventions come out of it! We created a booklet out of it with their invention description, title, and picture as if it were going into a catalog to be sold. They had so much fun!
This is my 7th year teaching the 5th grade. I have been lucky enough to work in the most amazing campus. I teach reading in a departmentalized campus in the upper elementary grades and I am enjoying it! Reading is a passion of mine!
