PREPARE THE GAME: To play game, you need to print out the deck of TIME CALLING CARDS and at least one LOTTO/ BINGO GAME BOARD for each player. Each player will also need approximately 10 pennies or chips to mark their board.
Distribute a LOTTO/BINGO GAME BOARD (which displays 9 different clocks with times) to each student.
Someone picks cards from the deck (it can be the teacher, or the players can take turns picking a card), and if any player has that time on their board, they cover it with a penny or chip.
Choose one of the game options below. The winner is the first person to cover all their clocks in one of the following predetermined patterns that you choose to use:
BLACKOUT LOTTO/BINGO--All effect squares must be covered to get BINGO. This is the most common way to play BINGO!
