What is POP?
At its heart, POP is a matching game. The simplest way to play is with normal playing cards or (even better) School Friendly Cards.
Similar to the game Snap, players place cards on table, matching if they have the same card in their hand and calling POP!
The player then collects a counter from a small pile in the middle. Another player can POP off this card too, and must call POP! POP! (collecting 2 counters), and so on.
The POP matching idea can be extended to matching shapes, time and much more. These 24 cards (best printed on card) can be easily cut out and used as classroom activities
Each set is 3 groups of 4 cards per page, with the very first card being a POP! Wild Card which can match with any other card.
