This is a standalone class that can be taken before any science class. Students will learn many Greek and Latin roots, prefixes and suffixes that will help them decipher longer, more complex science vocabulary. Students will learn through discussion. No real background knowledge is required. There won't be any homework. There will be a Kahoot interactive game at the end to wrap it up.
This is a lesson that I do every year with every class I teach. The finished list goes into their notebooks and is referred to throughout the year. I love words and love language and this is a technique I have always used to decipher unfamiliar words.
1 file available upon enrollmentI will provide an worksheet that has Latin/Greek roots and the definition. What we will discuss and fill in will be examples from both science and everyday life that contain those words. I will connect student's prior knowledge of language to the meanings to bring science and vocabulary to life. The worksheet can either be printed out and written on, or typed in on the computer.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
