What does a Root Word Lesson Plan provide?
  There will be 20 lesson plans with grade level appropriate roots/cells derived from Latin or Greek. For current Root Word Lesson Plan #1 through #7 all answers can be put INSIDE the puzzle boxes.
In each lesson plan three roots/cells are used. As a quick pre-test for students/teachers/life-long learners, determine if you know the meaning of the cell/root. Study it before submitting answers which solve the puzzles.

Having trouble? By hitting the submit button twice, you can access the answer.
Each word is used in context. Seven other activities accompany and supplement the study of each group of words. They include:
(1) Fill-in-the-Blanks, (2) Definition Match, (3) Synonym & Antonym Encounter, (4) Crossword, (5) Word Search, (6) True or False Sentences, (7) Contextual Story (including an AUDIO reading).
Be sure to include the name, city, state/country of your school when submitting your answers and requests.
