Africa Bingo, Geography Disguised as Fun, is just what you think it is with some fun twists. There are many ways to play the game:

  1. Simply show the flash card of the country
  2. Don’t show the card and name the country
  3. Read the North, West, South, East clues on the back
  4. Read the more complicated clues on the back
  5. Read the quirky rhyme that gives a clue for both the country and its capital.

Review / Learn the Countries

Additionally, your students can use the flash cards on their own to learn and review the countries of Africa.

The Games!

Simple Games

The first and simplest game will be to show the country on the flash card and name it. This is geared toward your youngest students and students completely unfamiliar with Africa. After students are familiar with Africa, you can call out the name of the country without showing the card.

North, South, East and West

The second game is a north/south/east/west test along with knowing where countries are. The student will start in one country and after a few directions and some humor will be asked to travel north, east, south or west and name the country they have arrived in. Here’s an example:

You are in South Sudan with President George Washington. No one ever knew he was a time traveler until this very moment. He yells, “I have crossed the Delaware, I can cross the border going west into that country.” When you cross the border, salute the President and yell: “Diamonds are this country’s most important export!”

Multiple Countries

The third game is a little more complicated. It will usually involve 2 or more countries and the student will be asked what country these encircle, or share borders with or this may evolve even more. Here’s an example:

You have not eaten in 20 days. You have had no water in 40 days. This is not possible. After you wake up you realize you are in Cameroon. You travel with your Dad, to Chad, he’s mad, you don’t know why, that’s sad. What you do know is that the southern border of Chad and the eastern border of Cameroon is on this country.

Quirky Rhymes

The fourth and last game is a quirky rhyme that gives a clue to both the country name and its capital. The leader sees the answer and reads the rhyme. Here’s an example:

Seychelles (say-SHELLS) Victoria (vik-TOR-ee-uh)

To enter the beach hideout, say “shells” three times in a row.
