Bingo/Bongo (JHS 1, 2 and 3年)

Students take turns asking the ALT questions in order to get bingo/bongo

The template for this along with some of the questions were originally created by Andy Webster on Englipedia.

Students take turns asking the ALT questions.

Out of 50, students place 25 numbers on the printed bingo board.
Students can have 10-15 minutes to read, strategize, and choose what questions they want to place and where.
“I think she’ll say yes/no to these questions, so I’ll place them here in hopes of a bingo/bongo.”

After they’re done, spin the “Wheel of Fate” to decide whose turn it is to ask a question.
If yes, mark the spot with an “O” --- If no, mark the spot with an “X”

I kept track of what questions were already asked and what the answers were by writing an “O” and “X” on the blackboard and writing the number of the question that was asked under the respective answer.

To win, get either five “O”s or five “X” in a row, column, or diagonally
five “O”s = bingo - - - five “X”s = bongo

After making an account, you can make your own wheel at
To make the wheel just select create activity, random wheel, and then input the students' personal number as an "item".

    Finally we find out what a bongo is!

    Thanks for this activity.

    The bongo was quite the enduring mystery!

    Surprisingly, many of my students seem to recognize this as bongo! After explaining the game, some of them would say "ahh, bongo!" I'm still not completely sure if I understand what bongo is myself, but this is how I interpreted it lolol

    This looks great. I gave a copy to my JTE and hopefully she agrees on doing this activity since we are just doing review activities with our JHS 3rd graders.

    @yukiyuki3094 I hope she does! It's been a ton of fun playing!!

    The age old mystery has come to an end, we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

    @nauteacher We did it yesterday and it was a blast. A really good activity especially my kids really don't know me well since I moved to this school just 5 months ago. Thank you very much!

    @yukiyuki3094 Ohh, yayy! It really is a great chance for the students to learn more about you. I'm glad you all had a great time!!

    Hi, will they be doing this in a group? or individually?

  10. nauteacher February 19, 2024

    I've had them do it individually, but you could probably do groups too!
