Word Roots

Fifth graders discover that for some words, the definition is actually in the word and that much of our language is derived from Latin and many words have Latin roots. They look at the definition part of the worksheet and go over it together. They then discuss as a class, other words they know that have Greek or Latin roots.

Lesson Planet has been fantastic!! I have been able to look at many different lessons based on my chosen theme and then just take the pieces I like and make it my own. It makes life so much easier and I have gleaned some great ideas. Thank you!!
