English grammar for kids: numbers memory games

how to play

This is a game to play in pairs or small groups. In the game of Memory, players try to collect pairs of matching cards.

  • All of the cards are placed face down on a flat surface.
  • A player turns up two cards; if they match, they are collected by the player and he or she goes again.
  • If they don't match, the cards are flipped over and it's the next player's turn.
  • The player with the most matching sets of cards at the end of the game wins.


  • Print out cards. If you want, you can stick the printout onto the heavy paper. Laminate for future use.
  • Cut out the individual cards. Learn more how to prepare our one-sided cards (pdf).
  • Before the game, revise or pre-teach the vocabulary used in the activity.
