Three motivating projects to get your class interacting with Greek and Latin word parts: Greekymon, Greek and Latin Spellbook, and Phobia-ology

none

Rather than just memorizing word parts, students will use those word parts to create three possible products: creatures called Greekymon, a Book of Spells, or a new phobia!

Objective

In this ongoing project, students use a list of Greek and Latin word parts to create three possible products: creatures called Greekymon, a Book of Spells, or a new phobia.

This was a great, ongoing "may do" task. Everyone had to make three things, but if they wanted to, they could work on it during their choice time. Let's just say some kids really wanted to keep going.

(I actually had to break up a "spell battle" at one point!)

Steps

  1. Students develop creatures called Greekymon whose features and behaviors match their name. Gotta catch 'em all!
  2. Students create a Book of Spells packed with incantations made from Greek and Latin word parts.
  3. Students develop a new phobia, based on their list of word parts.
