Recommended Grade Level:

Materials for Landforms Slap It! Science Card Game

  • Paper
  • Laminating Materials
  • Paper Cutter

Teacher instructions: Print on card stock and/or laminate the cards. (Card stock is recommended because some children will try to see through the cards.)

I use one-sided scrapbook paper to make the cards colorful, but it does not distort the color like colored card stock does.

You can use any format of cards for the center pile. It is best to use the format the students struggle with the most for the center pile because it allows them to relate the difficult format with formats that are easier for them to recognize.

It may also be best to use the definition cards as the center pile since they take longer to read and recognize.

Variations:

You can introduce the game with only two formats (a great option for younger learners- print only the landform pictures and names) simply by making more copies of the cards you will use for the playing cards.

Then, add different formats to the playing pile as students become more familiar with the landforms being reviewed.

You can use all three formats, but introduce the game with only the most familiar landforms and add additional landforms as they are learned.

Other game suggestions: Memory (print 1 copy each of two formats) Go Fish (print 2 copies each of two formats)
