PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Word Root of the Day!!

What does this powerpoint contain?
This powerpoint has everything you need for an engaging daily word root that enables students at various science literacy levels to participate. There are 75 different earth science and biology word roots that are contained in this powerpoint. Each slide lists the word root, a spot for the date, example words, and the word root meaning. At the end of the powerpoint is a template so you can add additional word roots of your choice. I took care to pick words that were relevant to biology, earth science, and students lives.

How do I use it?
I have this on the board as our bellwork when students arrive. Students get excited and think of this activity as a brain teaser. Students are to brainstorm words that contain the word root. Sometimes their words are associated with the word root and sometimes they aren't. Either way it leads to a (quick) class discussion about their terms before I share my examples. I'll ask leading questions or allow students to brainstorm the root meaning before providing the answer. All in all it takes about 5 minutes.
I can imagine this powerpoint being easily adapted for a word wall too!
