Remember the old concentration game? It's a card game in which all of the cards are laid face down on a surface and two cards are flipped face up on each turn. The object of the game is to find pairs of matching cards. This game works the same way, except that participants work collaboratively in teams, using both teambuilding skills and matching strategies along with physical activity.
These activities require the use of different skills from the team members: Students strong in content knowledge, students who work well collaboratively, students who can communicate effectively, and students with strong problem solving skills. This provides the potential for each student to be a factor in the accomplishments of their team, and for teammates to appreciate each other for their contributions.
Objectives: To practice and memorize geometry terms and concepts, to learn how to communicate and work together as a team, to apply problem solving strategies and to build the classroom community
