This can be used as a simple matching center OR as a fun whole group game that gets your kids moving and talking. I use Mingle and Match games to give my kids a chance to get their blood flowing, have a structured chance to talk, and still review crucial skills!
Students each get a card and disperse themselves throughout the room. Teacher shouts "Mingle!" and students walk around the room searching for the person who holds their match. Music is a great touch, too!
