Would you like a fun, challenging way to teach students the fifty states and capital cities? This set of 25 FULL-COLOR Bingo game sheets will do just that!
This packet contains a few components to help you and your students practice memorizing states and/or state capitals.
You will find the following items:
1. Clue sheets for both states and state capitals;
2. Twenty (20) full-color Bingo sheets containing state outlines;
3. A full-color map labelled with both states and state capitals.
What you will need:
1. Markers, coloring pencils, or regular pencils for students to mark the Bingo boxes
I have used this packet primarily with middle school 6th grade students, but I believe it can be modified to work with upper elementary school students, too.
In my classes, we play this game in a few ways:
The most challenging way we play is what I call blindly, which means that students must know the states outlines to compete and win the game. They do not receive a map labelled ahead of time. They must rely entirely on their memories to label the map correctly. When they get a state correct, they take a marker or coloring pencil and place a big “X” across the box.
If I am using the game as a way to introduce a study of the fifty states and capital cities, I allow them to use a map for guidance (which is included here). This is a good way to allow students to familiarize themselves with places in a less challenging way, but it is still very rewarding.
There are lots of possibilities here. Please download the preview to see a sample game sheet.
