This animal word concentration / memory game works the same as any other concentration game, except for the fact that you’re not looking for 2 identical pictures. You are looking for a word and a picture. For example, the word cat and the picture cat are a match. The rules of the game stay the same. Lay all the cards out with the pictures / words facing down. Take turns in turning 2 cards. After every turn without a match you turn the pictures back to their original position. If you do have a match you get to go again. The winner is the person with the most matches.
This download contains the following words: butterfly, cow, rooster, mole, rabbit, bird spider, pig, sheep, horse, chicken, bee, cat, dog, frog, duck, snail, fish.
Extra tips and suggestions:
- Print out the concentration cards twice if you only want to use the pictures, or words.
- A child can play this game alone by simply laying all the cards on the table facing upwards and matching the words with the pictures.
- After cutting out the pictures use a colored piece of paper and glue it to the back of the cards, otherwise the pictures and words might be seen through the paper.
