About this Product:
This is an informational newspaper-style text fun to use around the week of Halloween and can be used over the course of a few days. Bingo sheets are included, which have questions from the entire newspaper. Students read the informational text about the History of Halloween, pumpkins, and traditional folklore surrounding the holiday. Then, they answer questions from the “newspaper” in the bingo grid. The bingo grid comes in 26 different versions. Having each student use a different version of the answer grid will allow you to reinforce the content of the informational text by playing a game of bingo…possibly on the day of Halloween or at the end of the week.
The questions range from vocabulary, finding the main idea, using text features, as well as finding key details.
How to Play:
The first page is an answer key, which can be used to play the game of bingo. Cut up each square, place in a Ziploc bag or container of your choice and call out questions. Students must answer the question correctly and have 5 in a row. Up, down, or diagonally. Students can use counters, candy corn, or other Halloween treats to keep track of the questions called.
We hope you enjoy this festive activity as much as we did!!!
