So, our 3rd graders had an interesting Word Study lesson today. They were investigating <helicopter>, and had an initial hypothesis of <heli + copt + er>. So they typed <heli> into etymonline, to see if it was a prefix.

The rest of the story you will probably be able to guess, right after you try typing "heli" into etymonline.
