Use as a classroom group activity or leave on a center shelf for young children to begin identifying common Spring flowers. Use these matching cards vertically or horizontally. Cards are color coded to make matching easier particularly for younger children. Use the cards to play memory games. Come up with other extensions of your own! When children match pictures horizontally from left to right it become a pre-reading activity for later movement into reading. The same is true for vertical matching and scanning from top to bottom.
