Age 5 to 7
Challenge Level

The aim of this activity is to match pairs of cards. 

Click on a card in the interactivity below to turn it over. Then click on another one. If the two cards show the same amount, they will stay face-up. If the two cards do not show the same amount, they will return to being face-down. 

The game ends when all the cards have been matched in pairs. 

How do you know when a card matches another card?
Can you remember where particular cards are to help you match the pairs?

You may like to explore these alternative versions of the interactivity:

  • Play with a scoring system - you start with 100 points, lose 10 points whenever you turn over cards that don't match, and add 50 points whenever they do match.
  • Play against the clock - can you beat your personal best?
  • Play with face-up cards - the cards are all face-up at the start so you can focus on the maths rather than the memory aspect of the game.
