Flag Bingo is a printable educational game that challenges children to know and recognize the flags of the world.
The game consists of 112 flags of the most famous countries.
Every country in the world has a flag as a symbol of their country, each with its own colors and design.
Knowing flags can be useful when traveling and during international events such as the Olympic Games or the Eurovision Song Contest.
Flags are often a fascinating subject for children.
They are colorful enough to make it engaging enough for even young children and older children appreciate the clear connection between the flag and the country. At school we have a poster with the flags on it, and the children can often be found near this poster. When countries are discussed in a conversation, youth news or a lesson, the children often ask if they can look for the country’s flag. Through flags, children can easily learn about the wide variety of countries in the world.
Flag bingo consists of a separate PDF file with the 112 flags of the game without the name of the country that belongs to it.
In addition, there are two PDF files with 12 bingo cards each.
This shows flags with the name of the country clearly underneath.
It is useful to print and laminate the individual flag cards.
Of course this can also be done with the bingo cards.
Each of the 24 bingo cards is unique, there are no duplicate bingo cards.
If there is a demand for more unique bingo cards in the future, I would like to hear from you.
There is always the option to make more.
How do you play it?
The teacher or a player takes turns revealing one card, with all players trying to identify the flag to claim it for their bingo card.
To claim a flag card, a player must name the country it belongs to.
The names are on their bingo cards.
If children are playing this game for the first time, but cannot yet read well enough to name the countries, there is of course always the option of recognizing the patterns of a flag.
By then, as a teacher, mentioning the name of the country in question next to the flag shown, they gradually learn which country belongs to which flag.
The player who is the first to collect all the flags on his or her bingo card has of course won.
