Product Description
Unlock your students' creativity with this fun series of lessons and quizzes that push students to learn a wide range of Greek and Latin roots while playing Jeopardy, constructing fictional animals and encyclopedia entries, and building fake words out of roots and prefixes.

This unit includes a 6-page list of over 100 Greek and Latin roots and prefixes, with definitions and example words. There are 25 highlighted roots/prefixes that I deemed most important for students to know and the least likely for 6th graders to know already. I made these the required words for all students to memorize, and then allowed each student to choose 5-10 other roots they wanted to learn.

This unit also includes 2 songs I have written to help students memorize some of the more important roots/prefixes. One is to the tune of "Yankee Doodle," and the other to the tune of "Story of my Life" by One Direction.
