Word Root Exercise: Scop, Scope, Scopy

Here is a worksheet on the Greek word roots scop,-scope, and scopy. They mean to view, examine, and to observe. And I doubt you’ll be surprised to hear that you’ll find these roots at the base of such high-frequency English words as (and yes, these are on the worksheet itself) horoscope, kaleidoscope, and periscope. Microscope isn’t here, but if you want to add it you can; this, like almost everything else on Mark’s Text Terminal, is a Microsoft Word document that you can alter to your classroom’s needs.

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.
