This post is the first of what will be a number of posts on the topic of weather. My kids and I completed a Weather Unit earlier this school year where we learned about the water cycle, clouds, rain, snow, and other types of weather.
Today I’m offering a free printable Weather Bingo game you can use to teach kids about various types of weather in a fun and engaging way.
Plus, did you know that playing Bingo can help children develop their executive functioning skills? Executive functioning skills are controlled by the frontal cortex of the brain, and they are integral to the development of important skills such as impulse control. (We all want our kids to exhibit better impulse control, right?)
Changing up the rules each time you play Weather Bingo is a great way to give kids’ executive functioning skills a workout. For example, the first time kids need to get a straight line to win. The next time kids need to get the four corners to win. The next time kids need to fill in all squares to win. Mixing it up like this will help kids develop flexibility in their thinking.
My Weather Bingo game printable features a total of 10 different playing cards. Here is a sneak peak at the first six:
And here is a sneak peak at the calling cards used for playing:
You can play blackout Bingo, four corners Bingo, or line Bingo with these cards. No matter how you play, my Weather Bingo game provides a great opportunity to learn about different types of weather while having fun at the same time.
