This is NOT a full list of root words. This list includes only the root words that are applicable to the Biology curriculum for my state. If I were to include ALL roots, students would be overwhelmed and vocab can be overwhelming enough!
I give a copy of this root words list to all of my students on the first day of school. They put it in the front of their class binders and use it whenever we do vocabulary packets (which you can find on my store page!)
If a vocabulary word does not have a root that is listed on this page, then students do not have to define the root word in their vocab packet.
