Prefixes and Suffixes with 9 Quizzes

Use these prefixes and suffixes to help your students with vocabulary. One of the biggest struggles for students in Biology and Science is vocabulary.

To help your students learn the foundations of the “big words” used in Biology, introduce them to these 90 prefixes and suffixes.

I give the students 10 words each week. Depending on the class, I either assign them to learn on their own with a weekly quiz or we go over a few terms each day after the bell ringer and then quiz weekly.

After we get through all 90 words, I give them a quiz with 10 words chosen randomly from the first 45 words and another quiz the following week with 10 randomly chosen the remaining 45 words.






What Students Really Need To Hear

On the first day of school our student were shown a video about titled “What Students Really Need To Hear.” This may be a good video to include in your first day biology activities as a bell ringer. It is motivational video that can hopefully help encourage your students to get off to a great start.
