The State Shapes Match Game is a set of cards designed to help students recognize the 50 states based on their shapes, and also to promote interest in US Geography and Social Studies through fun activities.
Like any other memory game, cards are arranged in a grid, and each student flips two cards over, hoping to match the state’s name to its flag. If a match is found, the two cards are kept and the player goes again - if not, the player's turn is over. Can be played individually or in pairs. When played in pairs, the student who finishes the game with the most cards is the winner. Games such as this not only serve as a re-enforcement of geography lessons, but also as an excellent exercise to bolster short term memory development.
