In honor of Arbor Day, we thought you would enjoy playing our leaf matching game. As you play, talk about Arbor Day. Arbor Day is a special day that is set aside throughout the world to raise awareness of trees and the important role that they play in our environment. Trees benefit us:
- Trees help clean our air. They remove pollutants from the atmosphere, improving air quality.
- Trees provide us with oxygen. Trees take in carbon dioxide and releases oxygen—that is photosynthesis.
- Trees provide shade. This lowers air temperatures.
- Trees benefit wildlife. Trees provide a habitat for animals.
By understanding and appreciating the role of trees in our environment, we can do our part in maintaining and preserving trees.
- Print the New Horizon Academy Leaf Matching Game cards.
- Cut out the cards on the dotted line.
How To Play
- Mix up the cards.
- Lay the cards in rows, face down.
- Turn over any two cards.
- If the two cards match, keep them, and go again.
- If they do not match, turn them back over, and the next player turns over two cards.
- The game is over when all of the cards have been matched.
Have fun learning about Arbor Day and playing the Leaf Matching Game.
