English Makes Sense!

During Grade 2 Science with Fred today, the question of the term "medium" came up. In Lisa's SEL class I've been asked about the term "mediatation" and I've seen this issue come up all over.

I've created this pdf that you can use to explore what I've been learning about the morpholgy and etymology of the bound base <medi> and also some of its etymological relatives. 

Just as I left Fred's class, he mentioned the word <mode> which I thought was great because I was almost certain (and later confirmed) that this is correct. The word <mode> is not related etymologically to <middle> or <medium>. That gave me a chance to add a second circle (different etymological family) to the page!

Lots of questions can grow for this work so far...
