Did you know that many Perth suburbs are named after Noongar words? Balcatta, Gwelup, Innaloo, Karrinyup, Mundaring, Yanchep ... just to name a few!

Check out our Noongar Glossary to learn new words.

What to do:

  • Step 1: Print out your memory card game.

  • Step 2: Colour in the animals and cut out the cards.

  • Step 3: You can also decorate the back of the cards if you would like an extra fun and colourful deck! Check out the slideshow for inspiration.

Playing the memory game:

  • Step 1: Shuffle your cards and place them so the words and pictures are facing down.

  • Step 2: Either by yourself or playing with others, pick two cards and see if the pictures match.  

  • Step 3: If the pictures match, keep the two cards and have another turn. If they do not match, return the cards face down - your turn is finished!  

  • Step 4: Continue matching the pictures until all the cards have been matched and there are none left to pick up.  

  • Step 5: If playing against others, each player counts how many matching pairs they have. The winner is the player with the most pairs!  

Tips:

  • A matching set will have two identical animal pictures, but the names of the animals will be different - one in English and the other in Noongar!
  • Practice your language skills by saying the Noongar name of the animal when you pick it up.
