This three-part, ten-page activity is a compact study of selected Greek and Latin base words that function in our vocabulary as NUMBERS.
The first section, focusing on UNI–, BI–, and TRI–, begins with background information (see sample pages for full script) and flows into the identification of thirty-eight different words formed from these three word parts.
The second lesson targets NINE MORE counting base words, including QUAD–, OCTO–, DEC–, and MONO–, and presents fifty of their descents now functioning as English terms.
In the third portion, students use the base-word concept to write twenty programmed sentences with both real and created terms.
Full answer keys are included.
