These bingo boards are scaled down for beginning language students to practice animal vocabulary without being overwhelmed by too many choices. Each bingo board contains just six squares, and the game should be played as a "cover all" game. There are two boards per page; I recommend printing them on card stock and using a paper cutter to slice them in half before laminating them to make them last,
Because the board contains photographs of animals instead of words, this game can be used for ESL students or for fun in any world language class. Animals include typical pets and farm animals:
To modify this game, consider using animal sounds (which often vary by language) instead of their names, or have students take turns calling out the animals for additional speaking practice. I’ve also used it as low-key assessment by observing how students do as I call animals I see on their boards to check in on their receptive language skills.
