Create Your Own Luck – American Symbols Bingo has been designed with the intention of helping special needs students gain confidence identifying various symbols of American history in a fun and functional way. Students create their own Bingo Board and you create the play. Once Bingo Boards are assembled you can give students clues to the chosen symbol. Optimized for large group play with four or more players. There are countless ways to reinforce American history and have fun as a class.

(See List Above)
Step 1: Print or copy enough American Symbols Bingo Boards (Page 3), American Symbols Bingo Squares (Page 4) and American Symbols Bingo Chips (Page 5) for each student.
Step 2: Print 1 Set of American Symbols Bingo Caller Cards (Pages 6-11).
Step 3: Cut out American Symbols Bingo Caller Cards along dotted lines.
Step 4: Have students cut out all American Symbols Bingo Squares (Page 4) along dotted line.
Step 5: Have students randomly select sixteen of the twenty-five American Symbols Bingo Squares (Including Free Space which can be place anywhere).
Step 6: Have students paste their selected American Symbols Bingo Squares onto their American Symbols Bingo Board (Page 3). You can discard unused American Symbols Bingo Squares or use them to create a second American Symbols Bingo Board.
Step 7: Have students cut out American Symbols Bingo Chips (Page 5) along dotted line.
Step 8: PLAY!
How To Play:
Play as you would any other Bingo game. I generally play by randomly picking a card from the American Symbols Bingo Caller Cards and then devise a clue to the chosen American Symbol. For example, if you choose the Eagle I might ask what is America’s national bird?
You will want to closely monitor students as they create their Bingo Boards to make sure they are not copying each other or placing bingo squares in order. You may wish to play this on a regular basis so laminating American Symbols Bingo Boards (once assembled by students), American Symbols Bingo Chips (before they are cut out) and American Symbols Bingo Caller Cards (before they are cut out) is HIGHLY recommended.
