Tip: If you do not have 8.5″x11″ scrapbook paper, you can trim down a 12″x12″ paper to meet your printing needs. I find that the most economical way to get Laminating pouches and have the widest variety of styles.
To prep: Print the expanded form memory game on the white side of the scrapbook paper, laminate and cut apart the cards.
To play: In case you haven’t played Memory before, you turn over two cards at the same time. If they match, you get to keep them and turn over another set of trees to try again.
If they don’t match you turn them back over and it becomes the next person’s turn. Play continues until the cards have all been matched.
There are 2 sets of 6 pairs, so you can mix the sets together and have a big game or you can keep them as two separate games depending on the attention span and concentration of your learners.
