Greek and Latin stems are a huge part of our modern language! This fun and engaging dinosaur-themed stems project consists of two parts.
The first part gives students the opportunity to decipher various dinsaurs' names, based on the provided list of applicable Greek and Latin stems. Sudents will enjoy realizing that they can understand the meaning of real dinosaur names, just based on their knowlede of the stems.
The second part of the project has students create their very own, never-before-discovered dinosaur! Students can use the list of stems and create their very own dinosaur. Of course, just like the real dinosaurs, their dino will be given an appropriate name, based on its physical and behavioral characteristics. Students will also include a written explanation of why they gave their created dinosaur that name!
