What do you need?
memory game(s) (multiple)
How does it work?
The students team up in groups of four. The students place the memory cards picture down on the table. The first student picks a memory card and tries to find a similar one by picking up one of the other cards. If this card is not the same as the one he already picked up his turn is over. The other students will do the same thing until there are no cards left on the table. The students with the most matching cards wins.
What else do I need to know?
Bring more memory games so multiple groups can play at the same time. Memory can be played by a limited number of people so this prevents a lot of students from doing nothing. If you don’t have memory cards you can let the group make them together. You can also make a set of memory cards with a certain theme, like animals, countries, flags, numbers or words.
Purpose of this activity?
It's all in the name. With the game memory the students can train their brain and especially their memory. If you add al theme like countries, words or numbers the game has more educational value.
