2 complete games
These game review states and their capital cities. Game 1 includes Alabama – Missouri. Game 2 includes Montana –Wyoming. Both sets include Washington D.C. as the country’s capital.
Each game includes 25 unique color bingo cards, 25 blackline bingo cards, 26 calling cards in color and 26 in black and white, a list of states and capital cities, a study sheet, and a template for cutting squares to cover the answers, if you wish to use it.
Distribute a card to each student. Distribute a small handful of items for covering the spaces called (for example the included squares cut from the template, other pieces of paper, math manipulatives, cereal, candy, etc.).
Display a card and/or give the state name. Students cover the correct capital city on their Bingo card, if it occurs. When 5 spaces are covered in a row, column, or an a diagonal, the student calls out “Bingo”. The student must read back the cities covered in order to check their correctness. A new game begins as long as time permits, if time permits
After its introduction this could be a fun indoor recess game.
