Word Root Exercise: Plas, Plast, Plasm, and Plasty

Here is a worksheet on the Greek word roots plas, plast, plasm, and plasty. As you can probably see from looking at them, this is a set of roots that is very productive in medical words in English: they mean to form, forming cells or tissue, protoplasm,  and development. In other words, students interested in or pursuing careers in the healthcare professions, particularly at the post-secondary level, this document is for you.
