Student directions: Mix up all of the cards and place face down on the table. The person whose birthday is closest to today’s date will go first. The first person will turn over two cards. If they match, then the person gets to keep them. If they don’t match, then you will turn the cards back over and let the next person go. The cards that match will either be three-dimensional shapes with their nets or cubes stacked on top of each other with their front, top or side view given. The person with the most matches when all cards have been picked up wins!
Teacher directions: Cut the cards out (laminate them if you’d like) and place the cards in a baggy. This is a memory game. The students will lay all cards face down on the desk and then try to find matches. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins. If you want to separate the “space figures and nets” cards from the “stacked cubes and views” cards, then you can have two games at the same table. You can also keep a copy of the cards before you cut them out as an answer key.
