Age of Exploration BINGO
By K. Powers, M.S. Ed.
Use these 24 terms as a BINGO review game, “spelling” bee, end-of-class filler, or study guide.
Each term has three different questions. Items will print so that each term and its three questions fit on the front of an index card which you can use year after year.
I supply my students with blank BINGO sheets and they write all the terms plus “Free” in the middle, mixing up the terms so that everyone’s card is different. As we play (with a student caller) students write down information they want to remember for the test. The winner of one game becomes the caller of the next game.
24 terms include: Age of Exploration, Columbus; Prince Henry of Portugal; Smallpox; Aztecs; Cortes; Montezuma; Coronado; St. Augustine, FL; Bartolomeu Diaz; Conquistadores; LaSalle; wilderness; John Cabot; Henry Hudson; Vasco da Gama; Amerigo Vespucci; Balboa; Ponce de Leon; Ferdinand Magellan; Jacques Cartier; Hernando de Soto; Sir Francis Drake; and New World.
