Visual Roots Worksheets serve as an introduction to the Latin and Greek Roots Challenge roots (or prefixes or suffixes) for the week. They contain the root and its meaning, its source from Latin or Greek, and visual elements and descriptions to help students remember the meaning of the root ... which is the primary goal of the Roots Challenge.
The Visual Roots Worksheets are also used by students in the "brainstorming" component of the program. Students are asked to think of as many English words as they can that contain that root. This fun activity helps students understand that a single root can be found in dozens of words, and that understanding the meaning of the root help them figure out the meaning of the word it helps form.
