Derivative Hunt - Latin & Greek roots

My ELA class completed a Derivative Hunt using this week's root words -ex, -audi, and -port.

-ex: means out 
-port: means carry 
-audi: means hear, listen

 As a class, we talked about the meaning of these roots, and how knowing them will help us learn new words. Students then broke out the dictionaries, and "hunted" for words that connected to these root words. Take a look at the chart below of all the derivatives they found!
