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 shapes 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.

Use the Cards for More fun Apple Matching Activities:
- Use the cards for an independent matching activity and have the kids find the matching pictures and words.
- Sort the cards according to the number of sides they have. (Kids may be surprised at how many shapes have 4 sides!)
- Select 1 shape picture and have the kids find the matching word card from among several choices.
- For non-readers, make two copies of the picture cards instead of using the word cards.
