Product Description
I created this two-page Latin root word worksheet to help students break down the meaning of medical terminology found in the digestive system for Human Anatomy and Physiology. This worksheet features a two-column listing of 29 Latin/Greek root words on the first page. Then students break down the meaning of 21 scientific compound words. Students first are directed to slash each compound word into its roots. Then students are directed to write the meaning of each root in between slashes on the line next to the slashed compound term. Finally, students are directed to write the fluent meaning/definition of the term on the subsequent line. Refer to the provided example below.

Example: Hypoglycemia
↓ ↓
Student answer: Hypo/glyc/emia ___deficient/sugar/blood___
Definition: ___Low blood sugar levels___

Scientific compound words/terms covered in this conversion exercise are lipase, gastrointestinal, peristalsis, submucosa, pyrosis, gastric juice, nasopharynx, hepatitis, bolus, chyme, emulsification, cirrhosis, villi, sublingual glands, bilirubin, gastric, hepatic duct, esophagus, pharynx, protease, and pylorus.

A colored answer key is included.
