Before You Start:
How to Play:
Students play "Concentration" by taking turns (clockwise around the table). Each student can turn any 2 cards over so the animal is visible. If the cards "match" and the student can say what the shared characteristic is, she/he wins 10 points. If the student can also say how it helped the animal to survive she/he gets another 10 points.
The cards are removed from the game and placed face up by the student. Scorekeeper awards 10 (or 20) points by the students name.
The idea is for the students to both remember the position of the cards and more importantly to identify why they are a "match."
