Game about common root words to test Greek and Latin root word knowledge.
Instructions for Root words
A root word is a word or part of a word that forms the basis of new words by adding prefixes and suffixes. These words come from Latin and Greek in traditional root words and do not stand alone as a complete word. Understanding the meanings of common language roots can help you work out the meanings of new words as you see them.
This game Root words is designed to test your students knowledge of both Latin and Greek root words and their meanings while still having fun!
(L) = Latin root word
(G) = Greek root word
Level 1 to 2Multiple choice - On each level you will get up to ten questions with or without images, video and audio tracks. For each question you will get two or three possible answers. Only one of these is correct. It's up to you to find the right answer. If you guess incorrectly, you may try again, but you will not get any knowledge points for that round.
Level 3 to 4Memory - Find the two cards that belongs to each other. Sometimes it's the same card and sometimes there are different cards that belong together, which depends on how this memory was created. The game is finished when all card pairs have been found and the memory has no more cards left.
Level 5 to 6Questions with text answers - On each level you will get up to ten questions with or without images, videos and audio files. You must type the correct answer by yourself. If you make a mistake, you get to try again until you find the searched word or phrase. Once you figure out the correct answer, you will get knowledge points. If you're having trouble figuring out the correct answer, you can click on the button labelled 'Give Up'. It will reveal the correct answer, but you will not get any knowledge points for that round.
The game creator may have allowed you to get feedback on your typing. If so, the textbox, where you type your answer, will turn red or green as you type. The game creator has also decided if the answer is case sensitive, ie if it is important that you type in correct case. Both of these settings may vary between the levels, which you'll be noticed of when you play a level. You may misspell a maximum of three times per question. On your fourth misspelling, the question will be classified as incorrectly answered.
