Description: This computer based memory game has 3 difficulty levels to choose from. The K-5 level requires matching of same image pairs while the number of tiles increases in the 6-8 level and additionally requires students to match imagery from the exact same location but taken over two different time periods. The difference between the 6-8 (middle school) and the 9-16 (high school) level game is the number of tiles to be matched. Depending on the learning level, different learning objectives (provided) can be addressed.
