I play a slightly different version of Bingo in my geography classroom. After students make their own 'boards' from a preprinted template and a list of current vocabulary words, I give out numbered paper chips. I then call the first definition, such as 'flat or gently rolling land' and they put chip #1 on the word they think matches the definition -- hopefully 'plain'! I proceed with subsequent definitions in the same way. When someone yells BINGO, I check to see if the words have been covered in the right order. This version of Bingo allows me to check for knowledge as well as luck!
