What educators are saying

This is a great resource for med term students. I used it with my seniors who would already know the med term.....and it was both a wake up call for some and a fun review for others.
I used this as a sub activity on a day I was out of the classroom. It gave the students practice on word dissection and also made them think.

I created this activity for my students just learning medical terminology. The download comes with two activities:

"Medical Term Detectives": This worksheet reinforces the concept of breaking down complicated medical words into elements for synthesis and understanding.

"Take Two and Call Me in the Morning": Students will receive diagnoses of patients and must break the term down and then decide what to do for that condition. Fun way to apply medical terminology into real world scenarios.

Download includes:

"Medical Term Detectives" worksheet (14 terms)

"Take Two and Call Me in the Morning" worksheet (12 scenarios)

Medical Term Cheat Sheet (over 100 common medical elements)


Use this as your students are first learning medical terminology or just a way for more seasoned learners to reinforce their knowledge. I have also used it as a "sub" lesson because it reviews such basic and general information.

**UPDATE** To help with the need for online resources, this download now contains an option for students to use a PDF that can be completed electronically.
