This set comes with ONE blank Bingo card and TWO picture sheets with artworks and other art related things.
The students will create their own Bingo card by cutting out the pictures. Once you have a class set, you can laminate and reuse them. However, I enjoyed having my students cut out the pictures because they looked at and talked about all of the pictures. "Look at this silly picture of the dogs!" "Hey, this artist has the same name as you, Paul." "I'm cutting out the paints, because I love to paint." "I've seen this artwork before!"
I created this game because I wanted my students to play a fun game that also familiarized them with various historical works of art. Some of the Bingo games I tried had questions that were just over the little ones' heads. So, this game has no questions. Simply call out the artist, artwork or art media and the kids can see if they have that picture on their card. This is a fun activity for kids in those last classes before school gets out for the summer or right before a holiday break.
1. Print off enough copies so each student will have all 3 sheets.
2. In the center rectangle, write the word “Free”. That is a free space. They will cut out pictures of their choice from the 2 picture sheets and glue them on to their blank Bingo game board. They can arrange the pieces however they want. This took my first graders about 30 minutes.
3. After the students have made Art Bingo cards, you can laminate the cards to reuse them again and again.
4. Print out both of the picture sheets for yourself. Cut out the pieces. This will be the pile of cards you pick from to call out.
5. Proceed like a typical Bingo game, calling out cards and having the students put beans or Bingo chips on the spaces that match what you have called out. The first to get 5 in a row yells out Bingo! and they are the winner. You can keep going to get additional winners.
