Product Description
Learn 10 common Greek and Latin roots to help students unlock vocabulary. Understanding roots help students to prepare for standardized testing and gives them skills to independently improve their vocabulary.

The unit begins with a whole class activity to introduce how knowing roots can help to unlock words. Next are reference pages listing examples for each of the roots. Students complete a worksheet where they brainstorm words which contain each of the 10 roots.

An independent practice page has students match the roots with their definitions.
Another page asks students to complete words by inserting the appropriate root.

Next the class completes an activity of "I have, who has" where they listen to their classmate and determine if they have the card for the identified root.

A comprehensive root test includes recall questions (matching words with definitions) and application where students use words in context.
