This gamified lesson is adapted from a traditional card game called UNO. The game is for 4-5 players.


This lesson is constructed for learning Science, which focuses on Properties of Materials. With this game, students will be able to (1) identify objects based on the type of materials used, (2) classify objects and their characteristics and (3) arrange the objects based on their abilities to absorb water, float on the water surface and allow light to pass through.
