I have created this to go along with my RPS unit, but it can be used on its own to review Latin and Greek Roots and Prefixes!
My students were having a hard time comprehending the meaning of Latin and Greek roots and that they are just a section of a larger word normally.
For example, when I would ask them to give me a sentence with the root "Leg" used correctly they would say, "I have legs" and think that was correct. I created this to try to rectify that issue.
This is a 289 slide PowerPoint that uses interesting, colorful, and funny images to teach students the meaning of Latin and Greek roots and prefixes.
First, students are shown a Latin or Greek Root/Prefix and are given its meaning/other words that contain it.
The next two slides are pictures that represent that root/prefix.
For example, The picture slide might have an image of a group of colored pencil crayons. Students look at the pencils and associate the colorful pencils with the Greek root chrom. A meaningful and hopefully lasting mental connection is made (at least more than just plain old text on paper would!)
Check out the free sample to see which roots and prefixes this product covers!
