How did you remember that? Students create original color memory games to assist with developing fine motor skills and visual-spatial abilities.
Prior to students creating original memory games, play some well-known memory games with them to stimulate their interest and familiarize them with the process of playing this type of game.
Adults find or mix eight different colors of Crayola® Washable Tempera Paint. Organize students into small groups and ask them to put on their Crayola® Art Smocks before covering the work area for their group with recycled newspaper.
Distribute 16 index cards (3" x 5") to use as cards. This number can be increased or decreased depending upon the age and skill set of the group. Using Crayola® Crayons or Colored Pencils, students sketch the outline of a favorite shape (square, circle, triangle, etc.) on two cards for the game.
Once the set of cards has been outlined, students use Crayola® Brushes to paint the inside of each shape, matching the colors with the shapes. For example, if Joan outlined two squares, her two squares will both be painted with the same color paint. Allow cards to dry overnight.
Before returning to the game cards, play another round of an established memory game. Verbalize the thinking and concepts involved. For instance, "I remember Kylie turned over a green card on her last turn. Let's see…where was that card? I think it was in the left column."
Return to student groups and organize the game cards for a round of their memory game. By the way, did students name their game?
To play Color Memory: Play with 2-3 friends. Mix the cards. Place them face down in four equal rows. Each player, in turn, selects two cards. Name the colors turned over. If the cards have matching color, keep the cards and take another turn. If the colors are different, turn the cards face down for the next player's turn. The game is over when all cards are matched.
Let's make something!
