# File Folder Worksheets

#### What are File Folder Games?

Do you know what file folder games are? They are just as the name suggests - a game played on file folders. File folders are those little cream color folders, which we see normally in offices. Preschool and homeroom teachers use them to create fun activities for their children to play.

There is an incorrect concept that file folder games are only used for matching objects. However, teachers use these for several activities. You can use them for science and even for counting practices. Keep in mind that these activities can help your children to gain a strong grasp of different concepts. This section of our site features complete units that can be presented with file folders games and projects for students.
