Review Civil War vocabulary with an easy, quick game of bingo! This game includes words from the period before the Civil War, the course of the Civil War and Reconstruction.
This product includes 32 bingo cards, as well as a teacher call sheet with words, definitions and check boxes to track words used.
The game can be played at the beginning of the unit to really teach the vocabulary words, or towards the end as a quick review.
I laminate a class set and students use dry erase markers to play. For the first round or two, I call out the definitions and the students can help each other or shout out the words. For following rounds, I only call out the definition and the students have to select the correct word on their own.
This has been a huge success in my 11th grade history classes. The students are engaged and it helps them identify and recall vocabulary words.
