Need a fun way to review main idea with your students? Then this game is for you. This is a card game and is played just like the game UNO but with a slight twist. Every time a card is played the student must read a set of words and then decide what the main idea is for those words. There are detailed directions included on how to play.
What is included: 56 playing cards, directions and an answer key. I have also included 3 pages of card backs. I have found that if you print the cards on white paper the students can easily see through the paper to what is on the other side of the card, even if the card is laminated. If you do not wish to use the card backs, you can try to print the cards on card stock or a heavy weight paper.
The game is meant to be played with 2-4 players. You can print multiple sets and use them with the whole class or use them just for centers, small groups or fast finishers.
