This is an informational newspaper style text fun to use learn about Memorial Day and Independence Day. Included in this product are Bingo sheets which have questions from the “newspaper.” This activity can be used over a few days. Students read facts and information about the history of Memorial Day and Independence Day from the newspaper article. Then they write their 12 answers in the bingo grid. The bingo grid comes in 27 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 the Friday before Memorial Day.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 4 in a row. Up, down, or diagonally.
