This Roots Match-Up Game can be used over and over in the classroom- just like all of the other Match Up Activities in Kim Kroll's store!
The "board" gives 40 new roots (from the 40 presented in Match Up Activity # 4), such as terr, holo, carn, and tain.
The answer key is provided not only to make life easier, but to allow students to check their own work.
This lesson is great at the beginning of the year (and have students work in groups) and as the year progresses, pull it out and use again (perhaps with groups, or eventually, individually).
It is a great activity for the end of the year, too. You will be impressed how much the students have learned. What took them 20 minutes at the beginning of the year now takes 5 minutes for many students!
Throughout the year, I use this as a "filler" or "sponge activity." Once, my principal unexpectedly visited my classroom while the students were working one of my Match Up Acitivies- and he complimented me!

Match Up #4 Roots
Match Up BUNDLE
Learning to identify root words is a valuable lesson that will assist students when they decode unfamiliar words – throughout life! Although the CCSS specifically assigns roots and affixes to grades 6, 7, and 8, every grade
from 1 to 12 is expected to “determine or clarify the meaning of unknown words” Language Standard 2.4, 3.4, 5.4, 6.4, 7.4, 8.4, 9-10.4, and 11-12.4.
I hope you enjoy!
