vocabulary worksheet level 1




All the words for this activity come from the podcast
Ballarat where is that?!



1 Donna uses many words which have suffixes. A suffix is a letter or group of
letters added to the end of a word to make another word. For example happy +
ness = happiness. A suffix helps us know what part of speech a word is a noun,
verb, adjective or adverb.

Look at the words below and decide what part of speech they are. There is an
example done for you. (Two of the words also have prefixes)*

south + ern = southern ___________ ______________________

northern adjective
inter* + nation + al = international ___________ ______________________

un* + fortunate + ly = unfortunately ___________ ______________________

danger + ous = dangerous ___________ ______________________

care + ful = careful ___________ ______________________

tour + ist = tourist ___________ ______________________

Australia + ian = Australian ___________ ______________________

Britain + ish = British ___________ ______________________


2 Then add one more word which has the same suffix. There is an example
done for you.

3 Now look at these words (not from the podcast) and decide which suffix
above can be added to each one. Use each suffix only once.
