Here's an idea
for a variation on Bingo.
(You will find .pdf files available
below for copying)
Give each
student a blank bingo card like the one below, and a list of possible
answers.
Ask the students
to place the answers anywhere on the card. (There are 25 answers
listed below. If you wish to give a "free space", remove one
of the answers/questions.) Students will Xcross the appropriate
answer as each question is read. The questions can be read in any
order. Bingo can be obtained vertically, horizontally, or
diagonally (or with any other creative arrangement you wish to use.)
Below is a
sample game appropriate for this unit of study, with a teacher answer sheet, and a sheet for students.
Try it for a change of pace.
