I created this activity for my students just learning medical terminology. The download comes with two activities:
"Medical Term Detectives": This worksheet reinforces the concept of breaking down complicated medical words into elements for synthesis and understanding.
"Take Two and Call Me in the Morning": Students will receive diagnoses of patients and must break the term down and then decide what to do for that condition. Fun way to apply medical terminology into real world scenarios.
"Medical Term Detectives" worksheet (14 terms)
"Take Two and Call Me in the Morning" worksheet (12 scenarios)
Medical Term Cheat Sheet (over 100 common medical elements)
Use this as your students are first learning medical terminology or just a way for more seasoned learners to reinforce their knowledge. I have also used it as a "sub" lesson because it reviews such basic and general information.

Great practice for students with medical terminology
This activity was awesome. Left it for the students with a sub (they had some background knowledge but not a ton). Most finished in 70 minutes but not all - which is fine. Combined it with the valentine medical activity for those that finished early. The sub was thankful for such a great activity.
Great beginner WS.
I like using this the first week of school to help students learn the uses of medical terminology
Well organized and scaffolded
Well designed activities. Can be used "as is" which is such a time saver! Great graphics and distance learning option.
This has been a great tool to use as a review for my Health Science II students and my Nursing Fundamentals students.
Very useful for Health Science
