The last few days we’ve been working on your observation skills. Let’s move on now to memory. Noticing details doesn’t help much in an investigation if you can’t remember the details later. Let’s see how you do on this simple memory test. This game is easy to play. Just click on an FBI Seal and it will turn over. Click on a second seal and if this choice does not match the first, both of the seals will turn back over. Try two more seals and if they match, they will stay flipped over. Your goal is to complete the game with the least amount of tries. FBI Memory Game. Try this similar game from the national Reconnaissance Office: Memory Test.
Ok, now try this next memory game that is a bit harder. You will be asked to remember something that seems pretty easy - what a penny looks like. You’ll have to dig the details up from your memory bank though. Only one of the pennies is correct. Which one is it? Exploratorium: Common Cents. Usually, people remember only enough about an object to recognize it, most people don’t store small details in their memory…if you did well on this test, you have an uncommonly good memory! A great skill for an Ace Detective!
