Educational bingo games are a great way for pupils to learn so many different skills. This FREE bingo game is based on pupils’ knowledge of twelve of the twenty eight members of the European Union.

Bingo games help with listening skills, visual discrimination, group work, turn taking and the reinforcement of the learning content of that particular bingo game.

This bingo game is aimed at a group of six pupils, so it would be useful for Station Teaching or small group work. Two ways of playing the bingo game are included – using either picture matching or word-picture matching.

Print out and laminate sheets 1-6 for the pupils. Print and laminate multiple copies of either sheets 7-8 (images) or 9-10 (words) and cut into individual cards. Place the deck of cards upside-down in the centre of the group. Each pupil selects a card from the top of the deck. If they have that image/word on their card, they place the selected card on top of it. The first pupil to cover all six images on their card wins the game.

Alternatively, just print one copy of pages 7-8/9-10, laminate and cut up into cards. Place the deck of cards in the centre of the group. When a pupil selects a card with the same image/word as one on their own card, they cover their image with a counter or small cube and return the card to the bottom of the deck.

This bingo game is part of a large resource pack on the European Union which will shortly be available to Members. To download the full pack, which includes, posters, flashcards, loop card games, information and resources as Gaeilge, Register to become a Member.
