Reading Passages and Bingo - Medieval Castles, Architects and Engineers
BINGO: Medieval Architects and Engineers

BINGO is a fun way to review new concepts and vocabulary words. The words in this BINGO set relate to the topic of Medieval Architects and Engineers and make the perfect review for the eight pages of informational text that are included in this product. The passages can also be used for CLOSE READING, using any non-fiction graphic organizer (not included).

This product includes:
36 Unique Bingo Cards (18 pages with two cards per sheet)
The Caller’s Tracking Sheet
24 Calling Cards Containing Words and Clues
8 One-Page Passages of Informational Text

Informational Text
There are eight pages of informational text about the subject: Medieval Architects and Engineers. The passages cover the following topics:

• Who Were the Medieval Builders?
• Castles and Palaces
• Cathedrals and Churches
• Romanesque Architectural Style
• Gothic Architectural Style
• The Grotesques and Gargoyles
• Engineers: Siege Engines and Battering Rams
• Peasant Huts

Words that are included:
Architect, Battering Ram, Boulders, Burning Oil and Tar, Carpenters, Castle, Cathedral, Churches, Column, Daub, Engineers, Gargoyle, Gothic, Grotesque, Guilds, Master Mason, Mythical Creatures, Monsters, Palace, Quarrymen, Romanesque, Siege, Siege Engines, Stained Glass Windows, Trebuchet and Catapult, and Wattle

Although all cards contain the same 24 words, the order on each card is unique. Each student will find every word on their card. Of course, this means “blackout” is not a good option – although my students sometimes insisted on playing all the way through and singing out “BINGO” in unison at the end!

This product is great for a large group, class or co-op.! It can be played in the traditional way where the instructor randomly chooses one of the cards and calls out the word. Or, to play as a review game, the instructor can read the clue that appears on the card below the BINGO word.

(Note: The informational text also appears in my Medieval Careers Lesson Plan)
