## 3D Shapes Bingo Cards

Here are the details of 3D Shapes bingo.

What 3D Shapes Bingo Is About

This particular bingo game is designed to help students learn 3-Dimensional shapes.

How to Play 3D Shapes Bingo

Playing 3D Shapes bingo in the classroom (or in the case of parents, with your kids at home) is very simple. Here are the instructions:
1. Each student is given a bingo card or bingo worksheet containing a different random selection of names of 3D shapes.

Additionally, each student is also given a marker pen (or set of counters).

Here is an example of a typical 3D Shapes bingo card:

2. The teacher (or parent) describes (in random order) various 3D shapes (she can also show a picture or model if available).

3. The students then try to look for the name of the shape on their bingo card or worksheet.. If they find it, they cross off that square (or cover it with a counter). Students start off with one square they can mark off without waiting for it to be called out - the "Free Space" square in the middle of the bingo card.

4. The winner is the first student to achieve a winning pattern and call out "Bingo!" (the teacher or parent should check their card at this point).

It is of course essential that the teacher (or parent) should explain what is required for a winning pattern before play starts:

• If you want to play a short game: The winning pattern could be any straight line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) of five marked off squares.

• If you want to play medium-length game: The winning pattern could be any two intersecting straight lines of five marked off squares.

• If you want to play a long game: The winning pattern could be to mark off every square on the bingo card. Please note however, if lots of your students are prone to miss matches, you might never get a winner this way!

• If you have lots of students, and want to have multiple winners: You could have multiple winning patterns - the first winner is the first student to mark off all four corner squares, the second winner is the first student to get a straight line of five marked off squares, the third winner is the first student to get two intersecting lines of five, and the fourth winner is the student who is first to mark off all the squares on their bingo card.
