Finding a pair

Today I have been sorting my socks out.

We have 2 socks because we have 2 feet. 2 things which go together are called a pair. I had to look at my socks and match the 2 which were the same.

This activity made me think about the other pairs of things that I could find around my home.

Wellies, gloves and glasses all come in matching pairs because there are 2 of them which are the same.

Can you find any pairs of things around your home?

I have made a simple matching game too which you could make and play.

In the game you have to match the number symbol to the card with that number of dots.

To make it more challenging, you could make more numbers or put the cards face down and see if you can remember where the matching pair is.

Happy matching!
