This game has two levels of difficulty and contains three different games so that your students can learn at their own pace.


With the puzzle game, students have to find the observation network in question by its shape. At the same time, they develop fine psychomotor skills. The vocabulary game allows students to visualise the type of network and to read its name in order to enrich their vocabulary and understanding. The memory game asks students to remember the location of the cards representing the different networks.
