European Country Bingo - spatial literacy made competitive

European Country Bingo - spatial literacy made competitive

This is my first resource so please enjoy it for free and let me know what you think. As a Geography teacher, I have discovered that the spatial literacy of the children I teach is never up to scratch. In order to overcome this, I developed my own version of Bingo. This game is suitable for Year 6 upwards as variations on the game could make it challenging for children up to Year 9. This resource includes: A full set of instructions for the game, as well as options on how to mix it up so that you can use it again and again. The option to print your Bingo Game Cards in colour or in grayscale. Full model answer Checking Card in case you need a little help with the European countries - but more importantly to keep track of the country names you have already called out A set of Bingo Cards listing the European countries I hope you have as much fun playing this game with your classes as I have with mine! Happy Bingo-ing Jo
