Make a Bingo Card

 

1) Draw a table with 9 columns and three rows - this will give you 27 squares.

2) Using the numbers 1 - 90, add 15 numbers of your choice into the table, leaving 12 empty squares.

3) The first column is for numbers 1 -10, the next 11 - 20, then 21 - 30, 31 - 40, 41 - 50, 51 - 60, 61 - 70, 71 - 80 and finally 81 - 90.

4) There can only be 5 numbers in each row. There can be 0, 1, 2 or 3 numbers in each column.

 

Look at the example below - don't use this one - it's important that everyone has different cards!

 

There's also a template you can print off below - either write your numbers onto the PDF document or type them into  Word document.

 

On the next meeting, we'll have a game between us. I'll call numbers out one by one. If I call out your number you can 'dab'/mark it off. The first one to get a full line of (5) numbers wins, then the game continues until someone has dabbed/marked off all of their 15 numbers - a full house. When you get that line or full house - you need to let me know! - raise your hand on the screen/open your microphone and shout "line!" or "house!"
