Root Word Fun:  Agamographs for Latin Root Words
Are you looking for a resource that can keep your students focused on those days before holidays or after testing? These 3D agamographs are an engaging way to capture student attention, while contining to review vocaubulary.

Learning Latin roots is important for many reasons. Not only can it help students understand unfamiliar words in the English language, it can help in learning a second Latin-based language like Spanish or French.

This resource gives students a chance to link root word with meaning through art. Students can pair up to make agamographs -- three-dimensional pieces of art that change depending on the angle from which they’re viewed. Looking from the left shows the root, while looking from the right shows the English meaning and a related picture.

Have students color the pictures individually then partner up by finding the matching picture. (“aqua” with “water”, for example). Working together to assemble the agamograph makes a great cooperative activity. After the agamographs are completed, they can be displayed and students can use the graphic organizer to do a gallery walk and copy the information
