Math Bingo

Math Bingo

This lesson plan was written by Lisa Kihn, elementary teacher of Language Arts, Reading and Math at Nevin Platt Middle School in Boulder, (CO), and a former New Teacher Online web mentor.

Directions:

Create a worksheet with 25 review math problems on it. Give one copy to each student. Create an answer key, cut out the answers and put them in a hat to draw out. Make up a large grid with 25 blank spaces (see attached sheet) Have students record their answers to each question in the boxes on the Bingo Sheet. They can put their answers in any box. Gather bingo markers. I use beans or other small materials I have in the classroom, or I have students tear up small pieces of scrap paper to make their own.

When everyone is finished, begin the Bingo Game. Draw the answers out of the hat one at a time. Students cover their boxes with a marker if they have an answer that matches the number I draw out. A student should call out "Bingo" if he/she gets five in a row. Because students have put their answers in different places on their sheets, there are usually only one or two winners at a time. I try to vary the games: regular bingo, picture frame, make an "X" or a "T," etc. I also have small prizes for the winners – usually candy.

This is a good way to motivate students to be sure they have the correct answers!
