Make Memory Games with Memry

Who doesn't like to play Memory?  Now you can easily create Memory games for your students.  Or, better yet, have them create their own Memory games!

Memry is a memory game that uses Flickr pictures as cards. You only need to write a tag and the game cards suit the word.

Here's how this could be used...
  1. Create images based on a particular topic and save them to Flicker.  For example: Ratios.
  2. Assign the same tag to each image.  Try to use a tag that would not be used by other people so it will only pull images from your tag.  For example: ratiomatch
  3. Have students go to and enter the tag.  For example:  Students would enter ratiomatch.
  4. Play the game.
Create memory games from any matching activity. For example:  match Vocabulary words and defintions, match equations and their answer, match images and the word they represent, etc.

Did you know that you can create your own images in Power Point?   You can even create images of text.  Just type the text in a text box, right click on the edge of the text box, and Save as Picture.  Then just upload to Flicker, add a tag, and you have a game!
