Bingo! graphic - bingo cards

  • Ask participants to choose a theme, such as literacy, home, school, children, etc.

  • Give each participant a Bingo Card (attached), or ask them to make their own.

  • Ask participants to call out 16 words related to that theme, one word at a time-for example, kitchen, garden, etc.

  • Write each word on the board or a flipchart. At the same time, ask each participant to write the word in any of the boxes.

  • Call out the words at random. The first participant to get a straight line and call out "Bingo!" is the winner.

  • You can play this game using French or an Aboriginal language. Choose a topic like animals or the land, or another topic where people might be familiar with the words. You can call the game another name, if that is more appropriate for your community.
