What is Matching and Why is it Important?  

Objective: Students will match images and/or words based on content specific criteria to assess and build understanding of a topic.

Matching requires  students to evaluate, compare and match information based on explicit, topic-specific relationships.   Matching tasks require understanding of conceptual relationships, such as “for example,” “compare/contrast,” and “cause and effect.” These tasks require either solid knowledge of the content or strong deductive reasoning skills.   

Evaluating and generalizing connections, skills need to complete matching activities, are relevant in all grade levels and across the curriculum.
