Product Description
A fun bingo game to review common bowings, basic rhythms, and some other commonly used string techniques. Comes with 12 individual pages. (You can either have multiple "bingos" at the same time, or have students perform their "bingo" lines together!)

Bowing Bingo Instructions
Included in this package are 12 bingo cards. With a larger class you can use the cards twice, so you have two bingos occurring at the same time. This is a great activity to review for a test, or to use with smaller groups when rotating in sectionals.
Card stock, a printer, scissors, glue, bingo chips (Amazon has some good deals).
A projector or ELMO could be useful in reviewing the cards.
1. Cut out all 9 bingo calling cards in one large square (do not separate them yet!) It is recommended that you use card stock for your bingo cards (it works in most printers).
2. Glue the front and back sides of the bingo calling card sheets together; they should line up perfectly.
3. Wait for the calling cards to dry, and then cut them out.
Ways to play the game:
1. Use the calling card to call out the name of the technique. Students will then need to know what the terminology means to place a chip.
2. Call out the description of what the word means (be careful not to accidentally say the word!). Students will need to identify the name of the technique you are describing.
3. Demonstrate the technique, either with or without the terminology. Students will need to identify what they see and hear to place a chip.
4. Call out the cards in one of the three ways above. When a student calls “Bingo!” they will then need to demonstrate each technique in their line of bingo. This can also be expanded to include group bingo or to have the class play the line of bingo cards.
