Is it time to review some important vocabulary/terms about Maps and Globes with your class? If so, then this maps and globes BINGO game may fit perfectly into your class lesson plans.
I designed this "Maps and Globes"game for use with my 4th graders, but I feel sure it would work with third and fifth grades, too. Please use your best judgment when making a decision.
To give you an idea of some of the vocabulary reviewed, here are some key words that will come up in the game..... Hemisphere, Maps, Globes, Lines of Longitude, Lines, of Latitude, Equator, Grid, Key/Legend, Symbols, landforms, continents, elevation, cardinal/intermediate directions, boundary...... and many more.
When the students go to play the game, each student will get a Maps and Globes themed board. They will also get a sheet that has 32 answer cards. They will take a few minutes to cut out the answer cards and decide where they want to glue them on their BINGO board. They will mix them up on the board, so that all boards in the class will most likely be different. Eight answer cards will be left over, so not every kid will have every answer on their board.
If you want to 'recycle' the boards year after year, just have this year's class make the boards, color them, etc. Get them laminated, and you can reuse year after year.
The teacher then has 32 question cards dealing with maps and globes. The teacher will pull one card at a time and read it aloud........... more specific directions beyond this are given in the packet, but you get the point. :-)
This is a fun way to end a unit on the Maps and Globes and review before the unit test. Also, this would be something great to pull out toward the end of the year before your yearly standardized testing when it has been months since you have covered the content.
Have fun with this game.
