Cambridge Latin Course Magnetic Words No 1

On the blackboard you can move the words around to make 5 Latin sentences and their translations.
  • Hint - each one has a word in the DATIVE case (so you'll need to have got as far as Unit 1 Stage 9) You should be able to make many different sentences which make sense - but you can reveal a possible set of answers below.

  • Each sentence should have a noun in the NOMINATIVE, a noun in the DATIVE, a noun in the ACCUSATIVE and a verb (ending in -t). Try to get the 4 words in each Latin sentence in that order.

  • Hint - try picking out the 5 Latin verbs , then the datives etc

  • If you really think you are good (I nearly typed god!)when you've run out of words, you can add new "magnets" by SHIFT-clicking in a vacant area of the applet (then type what new letters you want on the magnet piece).

  • Or you can change the existing ones in the same way - try changing singulars to plural and vice versa (don't forget that means you'll have to change the verb too - from eg ostendit to ostenderunt!)
