Directions
Small Group Play:
Teacher deals 2 cards face up making sure all players can see the cards. Players scan the 2 cards looking for matching shapes with the same color. When a players sees a match, he or she says the color and shape. If correct, that player keeps the cards (or not - you decide). If they say the correct match at the same time, the teacher announces a tie and places the cards back into the deck.
Keep playing until the teacher is out of cards. If playing competitively, players count cards and the one with the most cards is the winner. There will be one card left at the end.

Two-Player Game:
All cards are dealt so that players have an equal number. Place extra card to the side. Each player places his or her pile of cards face down between the players. Both players flip the top card from their piles and place it face up so that both players can see both cards. Players scan the 2 cards looking for matching shapes and colors. When a players sees a match, he or she says the shape and color. If correct, that player keeps both cards in a separate pile. Keep playing until the cards have all been flipped.
Players count cards and the one with the most cards is the winner.

Materials Needed
Print the game cards on heavy paper. (Optional: Flip paper and print page 12 on the back of each paper.) Cut out and stack. There will be 31 cards. So one will not be used per game.

Bonus!
Shape poster for your classroom.
