Shape Match

This game, aimed at primary level involves recognising and matching 2D shapes. The game consists of a track with a 'shopping list' of shapes for each player. Players start in the bottom left-hand corner and move a single counter around the board. The idea is that children take it in turns to roll a dice and move around the track. Each time they land on a shape they check the list of shapes names on their side of the board. They may tag the shape name with another one of their counters if the shape they land on matches a name. The winner is the first player to place a counter on each of the five shape names.
