Mrs. Riddle's Getting Acquainted Bingo for Buddies
Do you have a buddy classroom system with an older or younger grade level? Are you looking for ideas to break the ice and get the older and younger students working as a team? If so, then this is the game for you. Pair off an older student with a younger student and give each pair a copy of the bingo form. Set a time limit and have pairs meet other pairs, asking those they meet if either person in the group can sign his/her name to a box stating that they've can verify doing the stated activity. Some will be geared to older students and some to younger students, allowing everyone to be involved. The first pair wins a prize, but everyone wins by getting to know one another. What a great kick off to a successful relationship between buddies!
