Taking Care of Earth

Refer students to the Spelling-Meaning Index at the back of the book to find a list of words that have the Latin root mit. Tell students to look up the meanings of any unfamiliar words in a dictionary. Then have students create posters that list several rules or commandments for taking care of planet Earth, using as many words with the root mit as they can. Encourage students to illustrate their posters.
