Educational bingo games are a great way for pupils to learn so many different skills. This FREE bingo game is based on animals you might see when going on an African safari. 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, cut up 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 in turn 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 very large Africa Resource Pack which will shortly be available on the website to Members. To download the full pack, which includes, posters, flashcards, worksheets, word mats, image mats, bingo games, information and resources as Gaeilge, Register to become a Member.
