    Challenge your students with this entertaining bingo game. Set includes 12 bingo cards – six from each half of the book. Bingo squares feature the meaning of a Greek or Latin root, such as "small." 120 game tiles are included, with one root on each tile. 108 of the roots are study roots (from Vocabulary Vine), while the remaining 12 are other important incidental roots. Two "Matching Sheets" are also included, which feature the meanings of each root. A root glossary is provided featuring all the roots and their definitions in case you need to look up a root to settle an argument or refresh everyone's memory! The glossary, bingo cards and tiles are all printed on cardstock, while the matching sheets and instructions are printed on paper.

    If you're already doing Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology, did you know that you are all set up for seamlessly tying in this course with Science Roots to learn 123 life science roots. Science Roots is set up in much the same way that Vocabulary Vine is (please see our Spelling/Vocabulary section for complete description), where the student is given a main list of roots, and they make a study card for the root, including a root definition, example words and their definitions, and the source language (Greek or Latin). The roots are arranged in the order they are encountered in Exploring Creation with Biology, so vocabulary study can be tied in chapter by chapter. The study would also work for any other biology text, but the coordination would not be as good. The author recommends this vocabulary study as a two-year plan, ideally started before Exploring Creation with Biology. In this case, the student would study 63 roots of more general science terms the first year, and 60 roots of more specifically life-science terms the second year. Detailed instructions and implementation are offered to get you up and running, along with frequently asked questions and some suggested learning games using the vocabulary roots. The appendix contains a taxonomy chart, a complete vocabulary list, and vocabulary lists for following either the one-year or two-year plan. If you're already doing Exploring Creation with Biology, why not link vocabulary study as well? - Jess

    If you'd prefer not to have your student fill out all of their own index cards, this set will do some of the work for them. It includes 123 cardstock cards, each with the word root printed in the upper left-hand corner, a list of related words beneath the root, and the reference from the book in the upper right-hand corner. Students will still need to supply the meanings to the cards and study them, but it saves them the time of creating all the cards for themselves.
