Kim's Game: memory exercise for secondary students- Digital and Paper/Pencil
Challenge your class with fun and rigor as students see and then try to remember the images in Kim's Game. Perfect for a beginning of the year class game or a mini lesson about executive functioning skills, this game will help your students discuss and create systems for remembering information.
Based on the Rudyard Kipling novel, Kim's Game gives students a glimpse of ten images related to school that they must try to remember. When one is taken away, they must identify it.
After four items are removed, students try to name all ten images. After they see the original screen with all ten items again, they reflect on their memorization strategy and how effective it was.
This Digital and Pencil Paper version comes with a video, a PowerPoint version for classroom projection or copying, as well as a Google Slides link. It also includes background information, CCSS, and how to use suggestions.
