SAT Vocab Extra Credit

I’ve attached the list of SAT words. You need to select 5 words and create a slideshow to present to the class outlining the words. The slides NEED to include the following:

  1. The word itself
  2. The definition
  3. The root of the word (Where did it come from?)
  4. Suffixes and prefixes.
  5. Synonym(s) and antonym(s)SAT Vocab Words

This assignment is worth 25 points. (5 vocab words x 5 requirements on the slides)
