“A modern version of traditional matching pairs”
This app explores memory by matching pairs of animals. There is a classic game and three different levels. Animals make sounds when you choose them. Animals are not sorted or classified in any way and the jump from level one to level two is significant.
“Concentrating with Giraffe is loads of fun!”
Giraffe's Matching Zoo Deluxe is a fun app with lively animals that reinforces concentration, focus and matching skills. Each level—of which there are three—has an increasing number of animals to pair up (8, 24 or 48). The game is timed, with quirky background music. Kids can see high scores and best times. Concentrating with Giraffe is a winner.
“Animal matching game uses images and animal sound effects”
Choose from three levels of difficulty in this memory game: 8, 24 or 48 cards. Tapping the card reveals a cartoon of an animal and an accompanying animal sound. Matching games like this one that give two different sensory cues hone both the visual and auditory memory. Adults may find it challenging too!
Take turns playing another kind of memory game: Place a bunch of random objects on a tray and cover them with a towel. Take turns taking a minute to study the objects before they're covered again, and then try to remember them all. Begin with three things and just keep increasing in number!
With the app, help kids focus on remembering where the animal cards were that they flipped over, away from the app, play concentration games with other objects.
To further train visual memory, play a game with your child where they look at a photograph for a minute, and then flip it over while you ask them about the contents of that photo. (What color shirt was dad wearing? How many trees are in the background? Etc.)
