A matching game with trivia to stimulate conversation and cognitive functioning!
This is one of many free activities.
Golden Carers has 1000s of activities and resources for senior care.

I've created a Word Doc. with different types of birds to stimulate conversation and cognitive functioning.

I ran the group as a matching game with some trivia about the bird before giving away the answer (showing the picture first).

Modifications: You may find it easier to have the bird names listed on the side (on a whiteboard) and cross off the ones you've chosen as you go along.

Enjoy! :)

We did this yesterday and found them really engaged, which for a memory care area is sometimes hard. We started by putting home made bird seed feeders into trees on our courtyard, then putting photos out for them to try and recognise before telling them the facts. I then used you tube to put identifying bird sounds with photos and they really liked that part, so we used our senses with touch, visual and hearing.

I used this activity today with my memory care residents and they loved it!
I gave them the facts and waited to see if they could guess before showing the picture of the bird. They got all but 2 which I thought was really good. Thanks for this activity. Would love some more similar to it.

We just got a "tablet" for our Activities group and we love having Golden Cares downloaded on it! It saves so much on photocopies and continues to make our day better:) Thank you
