Cemetery Symbolism

Games to reinforce learning the symbols found on gravestones

Several memory games can be played with this deck, including:
a) Traditional pelmanism - turning over two cards at a time to find a matching pair.
b) Sets - turning over up to 6 cards, to collect a set of the symbols listed on the Symbol Meanings cards. Many gravestone symbols fall into categories such as flowers and grasses or mortality symbols.

These have been tested in our edutainment workshop, "Gravestone Art and Symbolism."
