14 memory cards 7 pairs with the same picture
The pupils have to form 2 teams. The memory cards are placed on the other
side of the classroom. The first pupil of the team runs to the memory cards, picks
up two of them and says the name of the shape loudly. If two cards belong
together, the pupil is allowed to keep them. He runs back as fast as possible.
The next pupil starts.
If the two cards don’t belong together, the pupil has to turn them round and lay
them down again. He/She runs back as fast as possible and the next pupil starts.
Winner is the team which has got all pairs first.
“First I’ll divide you into two teams.”
“Now let’s leave the classroom.”
“We are going to play ‘running memory.’”
“Please stand up in a line”
“The first of your team runs to the memory cards, picks up two cards and names
the shape. Say it loudly so that your team members can hear you. If you find a
pair you have to pick it up and run back to your team. If you see two different
shapes on your cards you have to put them back on the floor.”
“Winner is the team which has got all pairs first”
