Advent Bingo 

 

Need:  Poster board, milk caps to be markers.

 

Directions:  Cut poster board into bingo card size and draw a bingo board consisting of at least 9 squares.  In the squares put an answer from the Advent Bingo questions (make each card different).  (Put clear contact paper on the cards and they will last for years).

  

Students play regular bingo, but they answer questions about Advent.  The teacher asks one student at a time a question from the list below.  The student answers the question and the class looks for the word on their bingo card.  The first student who gets three in a row (up, down, across, or diagonal) on their bingo card first, wins.
