I finally finished! My new game series "Trilogy" is finally a reality! I have been simmering on this one for quite a while, and I proud to say that the first edition is complete! I would LOVE feedback on it, so if you have time, pop over to my store and check it out. The idea came to me out of a need...a need for intermediate kids to have fun ways to independently practice many of the concepts we teach--but not in the "cute", primary way that so many games and activities are designed. I hope this "big kid" memory game series will be just such a tool for grades 3-6 teachers like me! Let me know what you think--and watch for more editions coming soon...I have others in the works!
Much like a typical memory game, students lay out an array of cards and look for matches. The big difference is that THESE games need THREE matches, not just two! It adds a level of challenge to the game--and increases the fun and engagement.
Having watched my students play this game, I could not believe the great discussions it generated! I'd love for you to check them out...here are the covers of a few of them! You can easily modify them by using less "trilogies" or by having students work in pairs. Check out these great topics!
Let me know what you think--and if you have other versions you would like to see!
