Four Bingo Games in One (see photos below)
A great bingo game to help your students review where African countries are and also learn each country’s capital.
- Learn country names and where they are
- Learn east, north, south and west
- Learn country locations in relation to other countries
- Learn country and its capital from a quirky rhyme (Caleb wrote these)
- Have fun doing all this!
Here’s a quirky rhyme example:
Mbabane (uhm-bah-BAHN-ay) and Lobamba (loh-BAHM-buh)
The swan is grand, but isn’t it too c-cold for watching b-birds.
Mom b-bought me a nice j-jacket so my c-coldness level is only two th-thirds.
But don’t low ball the t-temperature out here, it’s c-c-cold, let’s not mince w-words.
