PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let students combine vocabulary fun with history fun and geography fun!

This 11-page printable activity combines popular products “Word History Mystery” and “Vocabulary and Geography” —and saves you almost 30%!

“Word History Mystery” first introduces students to etymologies and then provides two worksheets with thirty words with interesting etymologies.

Example: from a Latin word for “ninth”

Answer: noon (noon originally meant 3 P.M.; in olden times, marking the time of a day began at 6 A.M., so 3 P.M. was the ninth hour of the day)

A separate answer key is provided.


“Vocabulary and Geography: Etymology Word Map” introduces students to etymologies and combines vocabulary with geography.

Students choose ten words (from a 100-word list) and use etymology in a print or online dictionary to determine the country that gave the word to English.

Next, students use a print or online map to find that country.

On their word-and-map worksheet, students record their word and the country that contributed it to English, and they draw a line from the name of the country to the country’s location on the map.

For example, the word ”beige” came to English from France, so students note France as the country that contributed the word to English and then draw an arrow to France on the map.

An answer key noting the word and country is provided.

These activities are suitable for upper elementary, middle school, high school, homeschool, and college classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
