provides 3 activities for learning about compound words: Making Pairs, Memory Game,
Your Junior Forest Rangers
will forage through up to 84 word cards to make woodland and wildlife themed, compound words.

❧ 1 recording sheet master
❧ 1 answer key
❧ 2 work mat / Memory grid masters
❧ 1 backing sheet master

The first activity, Making Pairs
, requires the children to find compound words by matching word cards. To aid students in this, the first word of each pair is written in green; the second word in yellow. Provide the work mats for students who may need organizational help. Use as many of the 84 cards as are appropriate for the age and stage of your learners. Instruct your learners to write their compound words on the recording sheet.
, the second activity, is a fun game for multiple children to play. Also known as Concentration
, the students will place the cards face down in an array, then flip 2 over with the hope of making a forest compound word. Play will proceed more smoothly if the cards are placed on the provided grid. Winning combinations are removed from the array and added to the player's win pile.
Directions are also included for playing Rummy
. This game requires a minimum of 2 players. After 6 cards are dealt to each player, the remaining cards will form a draw pile and a discard pile. Once again, students will seek card pairs that form a compound word. Matches are laid down in the players' win pile. When 1 player has matched all of his cards, the game is complete.
