Product Description
NEW FOR FALL 2015!
BINGO is a fun way to review new concepts and vocabulary words. The words in this BINGO set relate to the topic of Transcontinental Railroads and makes the perfect review for the nine pages of informational text that are included in this product. The passages can also be used for CLOSE READING, using any non-fiction graphic organizer (not included). Great for use by Substitute Teachers!

This product includes:
9 One-Page Reading Passages of Informational Text (LEXILE 850-950)
36 Unique Bingo Cards (18 pages with two cards per sheet)
The Caller’s Tracking Sheet
24 Calling Cards Containing Words and Clues

Reading Passages
There are nine pages of informational text about the topic: The Transcontinental Railroad. The passages cover the following topics:
• East Coast to West Coast
• The Central Pacific Railroad
• The Union Pacific Railroad
• All in a Day’s Work
• Life on the Job
• Who Were the Workers? Central Pacific Railroad
• Who Were the Workers? Union Pacific Railroad
• Promontory Summit
• Interesting Facts About the Transcontinental Railroad

Words that are included:
Central Pacific Railroad, Union Pacific Railroad, Promontory Summit, May 10, 1869, Gauge, Theodore Judah, Sierra Nevada Mountains, Surveyor, Utah, Standardize Time, Snow Sheds, Chinese Immigrants, Base Camps, The Big Four, Irish Immigrants, Railroad Ties, Soldiers and Former Slaves, Iron Horse, Mormons, Abraham Lincoln, Terminus, Brigham Young, Explosives, Roadbed

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 West Careers Lesson Plan)
