Unfamiliar words often appear when reading. Fifth graders should use different tactics to determine the meanings of unfamiliar words. They can use syllabication patterns and determine the meanings of roots and affixes in these words. As children become older, they will come in contact with multisyllabic words. In this quiz, students will determine the meanings of words by dissecting them.
