This package contains 6 separate themed concentration/memory games. These word memory games works the same as any other concentration game, except for the fact that you’re not looking for 2 identical pictures: you are looking for a word and a picture. For example, the word cat and the picture cat are a match. The rules of the game stay the same. Lay all the cards out with the pictures / words facing down. Take turns in turning 2 cards. After every turn without a match you turn the pictures back to their original position. If you do have a match you get to go again. The winner is the person with the most matches.

Extra tips and suggestions:

- Print out the memory game cards twice if you only want to use the pictures, or words.

- A student can play this game alone by simply laying all the cards on the table, facing upwards and matching the words with the pictures.

- After cutting out the use a colored piece of paper and glue it on the backside, otherwise the pictures and words might be seen through the paper.
