A prefix is a word part that is added to the beginning of a base word to change the meaning of that word.
Some examples of prefixes are: dislike, disapprove, disappear, reapply, rebuild, misunderstand, misbehave, unhelpful, unhealthy, unmotivated, preheat, preschool. Can you think of any more?
Check out our Prefix Pets below! Our challenge was to describe a pet (fictional or real) using as many prefixes as possible.
