Practice Structures: Uno Revisited
I already wrote about using UNO in math class. The first post includes some information about adapting the card game uno into a game for practicing math content. In my first post I included downloads for a version on conic sections and a version for angle pairs. Whereas the traditional UNO game focuses on playing a card with the same number or color, these games focus on two other characteristics. For example, the conic sections game focuses on matching either the type of conic (circle, ellipse, parabola, or hyperbola) or the center of the conic. The angle pairs game focuses on matching the type of angle pair (corresponding, alternate interior, alternate exterior, same side interior, same side exterior, linear pair, or vertical angles) or their relationship (congruent or supplementary).
Here is the link to the original post. Of course, you could also play the original version of the game with kindergarten students who are learning about identifying numeral and colors, but here is one more version.
