- 24 musical instrument sound clips - burn them on cd or play them from your laptop/computer:

02 guitar

03 piano

- Unpack the .zip file containing the cards and the sound clips.

- Print and optionally laminate all the cards and the check sheet.

- Burn the .wav files on a (music) cd and make sure the original order of the musical instrument sound clips is maintained. The numbers on the check sheet correspond with the numbers on the cd. Try to add a 10 second pause between each sound. Alternatively play the musical instrument sound clips straight from your (laptop) computer if you have one in the classroom.

- Hand out the bingo cards and make sure that every child has 6 chips (or something similar). Make sure you have enough chips yourself to put on the check sheet.

Let’s play:

- The object of the game is to match the musical instrument sound clips to the corresponding pictures.

- Turn on the cd and put it on random or shuffle play . This way the outcome of the game is truly random.

- When a student calls out a BINGO, you check this on your check sheet. If the BINGO is correct the student collect a small prize or a sticker.

- You can make the game a little easier by playing all the sounds in advance and explaining something about the instrument.

- You can make the game more difficult by handing out two or more cards to one student.

This musical instruments bingo game is a guaranteed hit and lots of fun so enjoy!
