Students play a concentration game to practice identifying and using names of common
Overview of Math Concept
Identifying and naming common shapes.
- Copy the game cards from the blackline master on construction paper
and laminate. You will need one set of words and shapes for each game
- Cut the cards apart.
- Mark all the cards in each deck with a different number, letter, or
sticker (i.e. all the cards in one deck have a red sticker, in the next
deck a blue sticker and so on). This makes it easy to sort the cards or
find in which deck a missing card belongs.Make copies of the direction
sheet as needed for students, assistants, or teachers to use in a center
or small group setting.
- To get the greatest number of pairs
- Players: 2-4
- Mix up the cards. Lay out the cards face down to make four rows
of four cards.
- The first player turns over two cards. If the shape and the word
match, the player takes the match and gets another turn. If they don't
match, it is the next player's turn.
- Continue taking turns until all the cards are matched up.
- The winner is the one with the most matches.
