PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let students combine vocabulary fun and history fun as they learn about the interesting etymology of 30 words.

This 5-page printable activity first introduces students to etymologies and then provides two worksheets with thirty words with interesting etymologies.

Example: from a Latin word for “ninth”

Answer: noon (noon originally meant 3 P.M.; in olden times, marking the time of a day began at 6 A.M., so 3 P.M. was the ninth hour of the day)

A separate answer key is provided.

This classroom-tested activity is suitable for upper elementary, middle school, high school, homeschool, and college classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
