Instructions for Use

Shapes Sorter allows students to play a shape game similar to concentration, in which they will have to remember and match up cards with the same shape. As a follow up activity, you can use the shapes from the game and ask students to sort the shapes using their own sorting rule.

Click “Start” to begin. Click on the cards to reveal the shape pictures. Match all of the shapes to win. As a follow up activity you can use the shapes from the game and ask students to sort the shapes using their own sorting rule.
