A Short Exercise on the Greek Word Root Alg/o

Here is a short exercise on the Greek Word root alg/o–it means pain–which can help students get settled after the transition between classes. This is also a vocabulary-building endeavor; I like to think these worksheets also–passively–assist students in developing pattern recognition in language.

Nonetheless, this is another medical root that will show up in words in the healthcare professions, if you have students headed in that direction.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
