    Hi! Thanks for the great idea. Would you play this with all 10 boxes that you have on your dia de los muertos strip or divide it into smaller sections? Thanks.

    I did it using a short reading about Monarch butterflies migrating to Mexico to get in words for the AP exam. It was a hit. Everyone wants to play again. I only used 5 strips/words with my group and we still read through both at least 3 times. I have a small group though.

    I couldn’t be happier with how Strip BINGO fit into my 2nd year class yesterday. I introduced vocab, showed pictures and talked about Día de los muertos, then had them play Strip BINGO with an authentic video (Contra el reloj, from el Gobierno de México). They watched the video about three times before most got BINGO. Thanks!

    This is great! I used it for Day of the Dead. I’m wondering if there is a blank template to be used with any topic.
