Product Description:

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

My son is using Exploring Creation with Biology and I thought this would be a nice supplement for learning and remembering biology terminology.

I'm starting my Bachelors of Environmental Science. I bought this to assist my studies in science related courses.

this will enhance my 9th graders biology class. She did not want to take a 5th year of Latin but understands the roots are important to know. This helps the tire to hit the road with latin in science.

We needed this for school, and it was $60 on Amazon! Great price here.

I was searching for a comprehensive resource specifically on science roots and it was very difficult to find! I read a review and it lead me to your website and to purchasing Science Roots.
