What better way to motivate children’s learning than by playing a game of bowling? This activity is a variation of bingo and is designed as a template that can be used for literacy or math review and can be adapted for prekindergarten to fifth grade. The unique aspect of our product is that it can be easily used for a small group activity that teachers and paraeducators (teacher aide, substitute, and parent volunteer) can easily manage and facilitate. The activity comes with the bowling lane, bowling ball chips, score sheet, and activity list. The score sheet is an efficient way for the facilitator of the game to keep track of the students who have participated and their progress.
