The Master Board Pad (Pad III) is used on the Master Board to list the roots and their meanings for each week. Visual Root Worksheets (Pad I) and Constructed Word Lists (Pad II) are also used with the Master Board and typically all three pads come bundled together in the Master Board Kits.
The Master Board is made of vinyl and must be mounted on a bulletin board. The Master Board is usually placed in a central location within the school building where all students will have access to it, such as a cafeteria or in the hallway outside the school office. Master Boards help to create the “community-building” quality of the Latin and Greek Roots Challenge by allowing all students to collaborate in identifying and recording "Constructed Words" on the Master Board and to view those recorded by others.
