PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

BINGO is a fun way to review new concepts and vocabulary words. The words in this BINGO set relate to the topics of The Pony Express, the Telegraph and Bill Cody’s Wild West Show and make the perfect review for the eight pages of informational text that are included in this product.

This product includes:
8 One-Page Passages of Informational Text (LEXILE 850)
36 Unique Bingo Cards (18 pages with two cards per sheet)
The Caller’s Tracking Sheet
24 Calling Cards Containing Words and Clues

Informational Text
There are eight pages of informational text about the topic: The Pony Express, Telegraph and Wild West Shows. The passages cover the following topics:
• The 1800s: Life in the West
• The Pony Express
• The Telegraph is Here!
• The Telegraph Lines
• Buffalo Bill Cody
• Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show
• Annie Oakley
• Little Sure Shot

Words that are included:
Pony Express; St. Joseph, Missouri; Way Station; Buffalo Bill Cody; Annie Oakley; Sharpshooter; Orphan; 120 Pounds; William Russell; Ten Miles; Sacramento, California; Sitting Bull; Telegraph; Oath; $25 a Week; Mochilas; 18 Months; Samuel Morse; Little Sure Shot; Ned Buntine; Washington and Baltimore; Wild West Show; 1860-1861; Dots and Dashes

Although all cards contain the same 24 words, the order on each card is unique. Each student will find every word on their card. Of course, this means “blackout” is not a good option – although my students sometimes insisted on playing all the way through and singing out “BINGO” in unison at the end!

This product is great for a large group, class or co-op.! It can be played in the traditional way where the instructor randomly chooses one of the cards and calls out the word. Or, to play as a review game, the instructor can read the clue that appears on the card below the BINGO word.

Note: The informational text also appears in my Wild, Wild West Careers Lesson Plan. The passages can also be used for CLOSE READING, using any non-fiction graphic organizer (not included).
