Word Root Exercise: Cide

OK, last but not least this afternoon, here is a worksheet on the Latin word root –cide. It means, you won’t be surprised to hear, “to kill.” This worksheet has several more words–eleven in all–than I usually include in such an exercise. That said, bear in mind that the words selected for inclusion are there because they often show up in high-stakes college admissions tests. That said, if this worksheet is too long, I would think you could dispense with germicide (any kid who uses hand sanitizer, which I hope is all kids during this pandemic) will quickly figure out what that means, uxoricide, and tyrannicide.

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.
