Product Description
Here’s another lesson in the Cryptomania! series—three sample pages from Greek and Latin for Cryptomaniacs, the student workbook I wrote to accompany my book Cryptomania! Teleporting into Greek and Latin with the Cryptokids.

Students explore English word look-alikes (cognates) in Latin, French, Spanish. Cognates are words that look the same or almost the same in two languages. The Latin “candela,” for example, is “candle” in English.

Your students will be surprised to find that they can figure out the English for many Latin words such as oceanus, honestus, parentes, stomachus, and more.

In Dig Deeper, your class will discover the meaning of the Greek word for planet; learn about other French word imports such as ballet, bouquet, and omelette; and switch suffixes on Spanish words to change them into English words. For example, salario becomes salary, artista becomes artist, inteligencia becomes intelligence.

Have students find other cognates in Latin, French, and Spanish and create a “Look-Alikes” bulletin board or a class “Our Cool Cognates” journal.
