Pairs

Resources

– Pre-made cards which match pictures to ideas (statements and pictures)
– Pictures and phrases related to your current topic area

How It Works

In pairs:
Turn all the cards upside down.

Take it in turns to turn over one card and place it upwards on the desk.

Read the word/image/definition/quote and pick another card to try and find its matching pair.

If you succeed remove both cards from the game and keep safely to one side. HAVE ANOTHER GO.

If you were unsuccessful turn both cards face down where they were and allow the next person to go. And so on.

Variations

– Differentiate for lower ability by having just pictures to match but getting them to discuss what the pictures mean
– For the more able pupils, try making the links between cards harder and more challenging. Can you get them REALLY evaluating each card?
