French Weather Pairs/Snap/Matching Game

French Weather Pairs/Snap/Matching Game

This is a card game to support learners with French weather vocabulary. It could be used as a pairs/pelmanism game, snap game or a simple matching game. Cards have reverse side (which says “Quel temps fait-il?”) so please print double sided if you wish to make use of this. From my experience it can be useful to have the reverse side to prevent any observant pupils having a sneaky read of the card when placed upside down!! My resource comes as a PDF ready to print, as well as a Word document so you can edit as you wish. The spacing of the cards should be correct so this will save you a lot of work! I hope you find this resource useful.
