Information about five different card games for your students to play. About the rock cycle, sound, states of matter, Kingdoms of living things, and animal classification.
These are original hard good items that I am letting you know about here so you can find my games more easily doing a search. It also serves as a summary of all my games, in case you hadn't considered hard good items to use as a Science resource.
ROCK-ON® , the rock cycle card game
Each deck is comprised of Igneous, Metamorphic, and Sedimentary rock cards in addition to Magma, and Sediments cards. Additional cards represent each of the five processes that change one type to another. Cards are played in an order to simulate the cycle rocks go through in the real world.
States of Matter
Each deck consists of Solid, Liquid, Gas, Melt, Evaporate, Condense, and Solidify (Freeze) cards. Cards are played in an order to simulate the changes matter goes through in the real world. Cards are color coded to ensure that the correct card is played at the right time
Silence! a game about sound
Each deck consists of 30 pairs of cards dealing with Sound concepts. Players take turns asking each other for a card to complete their pair. The winner is the first person who collects the most number of pairs.
Kingdoms, of living things
Each deck consists of 12 Monera, 12 Protist, 12 Fungi, 12 Plant, and 12 Animal kingdom cards. A player must collect three different cards from one kingdom and four different cards from another kingdom in order to win.
Who's Got the Bones? (about vertebrates and invertebrates)
Each deck consists of 25 vertebrate cards in five classes (mammal, fish, bird, amphibian, and reptile) and 29 invertebrate cards in six different phyla (arthropod, mollusk, cnidaria, echinoderm, porifera, and annelid). The object of this game is to collect one of each class of vertebrate OR one of each of five different phyla of invertebrates
I am a teacher in the Prince William County Public School System in Northern Virginia. I'm very excited about several card games I invented to help students learn about basic science concepts related to the Rock Cycle, Sound, Matter, Kingdoms of living things, and Vertebrates/Invertebrates. These games are very easy to play and can be played in a short period of time. They can be used as a hands-on tool to complement a science unit. They are also the perfect, fun, quick way to review before state exams. Each card is plastic coated for durability. For the visual learner, actual photographs reinforce the concepts presented.
No set-up time required. Just deal the cards and play.
Students can play independently. Cards are colored coded to ensure that the correct card is played at the right time.
Limited time? Great for those 10 extra minutes. Perfect for students who finish an assignment early, or as a reward at the end of a good day.
High Quality. Each card is plastic coated for durability. Actual photographs are used to enhance learning.
Created by a teacher. Used successfully in the classroom with real students. They love them!!
For 2 to 6 players
