Memory Match Review Games

We are into our 7th week of homeschool for this year. We have kinda gotten into our routine now, and I am always trying to come up with ways to make our days more fun and Big Brother's lessons more engaging. I have also been looking for ways to work with Big Brother on improving his working memory (something he struggles with). So I have made some simple games for this purpose.

I have created a Memory Match Review Game for science and another one for history. These are Big Brother's favorite subjects.

I went through his textbooks and found important vocabulary words, facts, dates, people, etc. and wrote them with marker on index cards.

I used green marker on our science cards and red marker for history so I can keep the games separate. The games will fit nicely in a card box or ziploc bag.

The games are easy to play! First mix the cards well. Then lay out all the cards face down on a table or the floor. The first player turns over two cards. If they are a match, he keeps them. If they are not a match, he turns them back over. Then the next player (or the teacher) takes a turn. Play continues until all the cards have been matched. The player with the most matching sets wins the game.

This could also be played by the student on his own as just a fun way to review concepts or study for a test.

Big Brother loves reviewing what he has learned this way! And he is building up his memory muscles as he plays, too.

A game like this could work for reviewing basically any academic subject on any level.

Have you ever used games to teach or review in your homeschool? Tell me about it!!!

  1. Play free online games at bgames now. Website play games very good! One of the factors that made the game interesting and appealing to players at the time of launch was the existence of the bot system. These are virtual characters, controlled by the control system that participate in real-life battles. Of course, they can not compare intelligence with humans so they are easily defeated. This gives gamers a bigger chance of winning a 100-player battle, which is very unlikely on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on the computer, when all the opponents are real.

    Nevertheless, the manufacturer claims that these "robots" only appear at low levels to stimulate players to play and train. They will disappear when the players level up, have higher level of manipulation.
