This is the more difficult version of the original Rhythm Bingo. This game uses rhythms based on semibreves, minims, crotchets, quavers, semiquavers, dotted rhythms, triplets and rest. Take a look at the preview for a sample of the rhythms. This is aimed primarily at GCSE students but could be used at KS3 or KS5. Useful as as a starter or plenary activity or even as a starting point for a whole lesson.
There are 16 unique bingo cards (1 per page in a PDF document). Each bingo card has 16 different rhythms on it and the pack includes 16 audio recordings of the rhythms featured on the cards. Each track corresponds to the numbers on the bingo cards and has a four beat intro before the rhythm plays. Sample rhythms can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/russ16/sets/rhythm-bingo-2-card-game-sample-rhythms
Simply print off the bingo cards, hand out to students (I get students to work in pairs), select the audio files at random and let the students work out which rhythm fits what they are hearing. Make your own rules for bingo or have students come up with their own. Simply laminate them to use them time and time again.
You can also use the cards as a performing activity before hearing the audio files. Ask students to try and work out what the rhythms are before they hear them.
As a composing activity, there is a blank card that you can get students to compose their own rhythms in the blank bingo card in the pack.
Any feedback would be greatly received. Let me know how you got on with it and I welcome any suggestions for improvements.
