Ocean Features Bingo Card

These cards are about Ocean Features. Earth's oceans cover approximately 140 million square miles, which is roughly 70% of the Earth's surface. The deepest point is in the Mariana Trench at 36, 198 feet. Within the world's oceans lie mountains, active volcanoes, plateaus and deep trenches. These include words like Mariana Trench, abyssal zone, continental shelf, ocean trench, and submarine canyon.

How To Play Ocean Floor Features Bingo

  1. Print out your free Ocean Features bingo boards, or make custom ones with Bingo Card Creator. Click here to get started.
  2. Give one card to each player.
  3. Call off words randomly, for example by using a call list. You can either just say a word, like "coral reef", or you can make up a more involved clue involving coral reef.
  4. When a word is called, each player should find it and mark it.
  5. The first player(s) to clear five words in any direction (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) wins a small prize.

Notes: How long a bingo game lasts depends on what pace you read the clues at and how many players you have. If you read faster, such as for older or more experienced students, or if you have more players, the game tends to end more quickly. In general, I suggest allocating between twenty and thirty minutes to a bingo game. Since they can potentially end as early as the fourth word called, though that is quite rare, I encourage you to keep playing in the event of the game being over earlier than you expected it to be. Almost 90% of bingo games with a 25 word list and 25 players will see their first bingo within 7 to 11 words being called.
