Roman Number Bingo
I'm not sure whether the Roman's played Bingo - but this teaching resource is aimed at giving children plenty of opportunities to read and use Roman Numerals as part of a game. The resource consists of 20 different Bingo boards featuring 11 numbers in Roman numerals and 36 different 'calling' cards.
Print out the game boards and separate into 20 individual A5 boards. Print the 36 'calling' cards, and separate into individual cards.
The game can be played in the traditional manner (preferably with the children working in pairs or small teams to complete a Bingo board). As an alternative activity though, we have also played it as a matching game. Children work together with on game board and all of the 'calling' cards. The challenge is to search through the cards to find the matching number to cover each of the Roman numbers on the board. This could even be timed.
We have played the game many years ago so know it works well - but clearly the children need to have an understanding of how Roman Numerals are written before they can play the game. The following mini information sheet is provided as part of the download:
Here's a quick view of 6 of the 20 boards:
