Finally, a fun way to reinforce content area vocabulary! This familiar activity will have students actively thinking about, and discussing, the Civil War.
Because students only have to recognize the term for each definition, not generate it, this activity is ideal for discussing both new and familiar words. 30 game boards are included in each set to allow for whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. 30 vocabulary words are used on the cards, but each board only has 25; students have to really think about the words and their definitions, because they may not have a word to match every definition called. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential.
The terms featured in this engaging activity are abolitionist, antebellum, artillery,
Battle of Gettysburg, blockade, border states, cavalry, campaign, Confederacy, conscript / draftee, commutation, draft, Eastern theater, emancipation, Emancipation Proclamation, Fugitive Slave Law, Gettysburg Address, infantry, Mason Dixon line, rebel, reconstruction, retreat, secede, sectionalism, siege, States Rights, Underground Railroad, Union, Western theater
