If you want to hide the words and definitions, and go back to the intro screen, click on the Bear.
Our matching games are a fun, effective and excellent way for ESL kids to learn, practise and review new English vocabulary. In each game kids have to find ten pairs of picture-word. Below you will find some tips and ideas on how to play these games, plus links to all of them.
how to play matching games
There are twenty cards in the game. Ten of the cards have pictures and ten of the cards have words. At the beginning of the game they are displayed face down.
Click on two cards to match the word and the picture. If they show the pair, the cards remain open. If the two cards don’t match, they are turned face down again. Continue until you have ten pairs.
Try to remember where the pictures or words are. You have to match all the pictures and words as quickly as possible. Click on the Play Again button to start the new game.
