This menu has been designed to teach and reinforce the idea that most modern English words originated in other languages. This menu will be helpful as students are introduced to common Greek and/or Latin root words. Links are provided to guide you to lists of common Green and Latin root words that might be used with your students. This menu was created in a Word document so that you can customize it for your students based on their needs and abilities. Each menu option can be customized! There are ten creative options for students to choose from including creating and writing about a superhero (based on a root word- think of AQUAman!), making a collage based on the meaning of root words, completing thinking maps for specific root words, writing creative poems to explain and reflect on the meaning of root words, and much more! Your students will find these activities meaningful and helpful as they learn Greek and Latin root words that will surely improve their ability to understand new words using their knowledge of word parts.
