"Destination: United States BINGO" pairs nicely with your study of famous U.S national landmarks and iconic tourist attractions. It's a great summer and travel-themed activity, but your students will enjoy this game any time of year!

•Reference notes and quick “blurbs” about each destination for the teacher (in alphabetical order, found at the end of this document). I've included this portion in case your students are intrigued and want a little more information about each destination.
•Historical Landmark Research Notes page for students to do their own research about one of the destinations and to take notes on. You can use this as an optional EXTENSION ACTIVITY! It is found on the last page of the document.
I recommend laminating or printing the game boards on card stock to make them durable so you can use them year after year. Alternatively, you can put them in clear slip covers, which I love to do! Students can use game “chips” to cover their words/pictures as they are called out by the teacher. If you laminate or use clear slip covers for the game cards, you can have students use dry erase markers to cross out the words/pictures with an “X.” This makes for easy clean up!
Students calls out “BINGO!” when he/she gets 5 words/pictures in a row, including the FREE space (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal). You can make the game longer by having students form a large “X” or play “black out.”
