Biology Greek & Latin Roots
Add vocabulary to your biology instruction with this bundle. Everything you need for a full year of roots-based instruction tailored to the Biology classroom.
The bundle includes a master sheet with 135 roots broken into 13 sets, illustrated PowerPoints for each set of 10 roots, 4 versions each of 13 quizzes with keys (2 versions are cumulative and 2 are not).
Roots-based instruction highlights Greek and Latin roots and their use in science. I've found this especially helpful working with ESOL students who are struggling with the English language, and all secondary level learners in general.
In my Biology classes, I introduce the roots concept during the first week of school (introductory slides are included in the first PowerPoint). Students add five or ten roots at a time, depending on their level (I have ESOL classes that add five per day and Biology classes that add ten per day). The PowerPoint has slides to structure student note-taking as well as slides that review each root, words in a science context that include the root, and an illustration that relates the word to other potential cognates. I require my ESOL classes to make Frayer model note cards while I review the roots. Students quiz every other week. You have the option of giving cumulative quizzes or quizzes that just cover the weeks' roots with this bundle.
