This engaging activity puts a fun holiday-themed spin on learning or reviewing Greek and Latin roots! It also makes a creative bulletin board or school hallway display!
As teacher, you can decide whether you want your students to assemble the Latin Roots' lights/house, the Greek Roots' lights/house, OR BOTH! (If you choose to do both, students can simply turn over the first house they assembled, and create the second house on the back of the same paper!)
Students complete the Latin Root and/or the Greek Root worksheets. They write the meaning of the root on the same light bulb. Then they write two example words containing that root on the light bulb directly below.
Once the worksheets are complete, students begin to assemble their holiday house. This product includes detailed instructions (with photos) for your students to follow. It also includes a teacher note page with a few suggestions for the teacher to consider to make the project run smoothly.
I have also included a blank page of lights for teachers who want to personalize this project based on the Greek and Latin roots you have taught your students!
Be sure to check out the preview. (Almost all of the pages are shown!)
