Then you might want to encourage them to play their own home game of the old TV game called “Concentration.”
Take geography, for example. Say your child is trying to learn to associate cities and countries with their representative symbols and images. For instance, the image of the Eiffel Tower often represents the city of Paris in pictures. The Taj Mahal is identified with India.
Suggest that your child:
Cut out pictures of such buildings and monuments from travel magazines or the free brochures from travel agents.
Take about 20 blank file cards and paste a picture on 10 of them. Write the name of each structure under its picture.
On the other 10 cards, write the name of the city and country that is associated with each.
Lay all the cards on the table in rows with their blank sides showing.
Each player who turns up a matching pair (a picture and its matching written city or country) gets to keep the cards. Cards that don’t match are turned to their blank sides again. The player who collects the most matches wins.
