3. Download the activity. Ask the children to use this to create a matching card game by writing the 2 sets of ow words in colour-code on the blank side of the card templates. Children play the game by taking turns to turn over a pair of cards. If the words match, they keep the pair. If they don’t, they turn the cards back over. The winner is the player with the most cards.
