Xiphias Gladius (A to Z Challenge)

Did you know the Xiphias gladius is just the species name for the swordfish? Children are amazing they can obsorb anything! So why not teach them a little science lingo now! Teaching children the scientific names for common things can put them leaps and bounds ahead in hard science classes later...also learning a few common words in Latin is amazing! Classes such as biology, chemistry, math, and geology all use scientific terms and Latin roots! 

Here's a fun list of scientific names you can use in teaching now! 

Common Words: 

Terra - Earth
Tempus - Time
Homo - Human
Derma - Skin 
Endo - Within 
Exo - Outside
Iso - Equal 
Micro - Small
