What is U-Know?

U-Know is a fun and engaging card game where students practice topics in a repetitive way. I also use U-Know in stations or with early finishers throughout the year to spiral concepts for students. U-Know comes in MANY topics! So, once students learn the game, it will become a self-run station!

U-Know is played with students matching color/number to the card the previous player put down. Once they put their card down, they must read and answer. If correct, play moves on. If incorrect, player draws 2 new cards and play moves on. Students check answers with the included answer key.

➔Didn’t cover a topic? That’s ok. Just take those cards out! Students won’t even notice and the game will still be able to be played.

If you like this game, be sure to check out my whole line of U-KNOW Games!!!
