Memory Match Games


Students will use their memory and matching skills in this fun game that can be played with one or two players. Set the difficulty by choosing 6, 8, 12 or 16 cards. There are 4 options for making matches: match pictures, words, pictures with words or pictures to words.
You can choose to display numbers on the front of the cards which helps when playing remotely with students.

This game requires that you choose a word list to play in the game. To search for word lists, click on Play in the menu bar at the top of the screen and then choose Word List from the Filter drop down.
