Memorize Activity

Geography and Maps

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create and play a Memorize activity matching maps to location names. The tiles do not match meaning each pair consists of a map and matching name. You will learn how to upload an image along with adding plain text.


Before beginning, save eight maps using the Browse activity. For this tutorial, eight Australian states and territories were saved using images from Wikipedia.

Note: Wikipedia is a good source for pictures as pictures are within the public domain.
