Animal sound bingo

I created a new game for your classroom (or at home!). It’s called animal sound bingo.

This is a bingo game where the students have to listen to short animal sound clips and match them to the photos of these animal on their bingo cards. The package contains 24 animal sound clips, a check sheet and 32 different cards. This is great fun for in the classroom! From Kindergarten to fourth graders (and above), everyone will enjoy this!

The download contains:

– 32 different bingo cards
– 1 check sheet
– 24 animal sound clips – burn them on cd or play them from your laptop/computer:

01 dolphin
02 snake
03 donkey
04 killer whale
05 wolf
06 cricket
07 owl
08 cat
09 duck
10 pig
11 bee
12 seal
13 deer
14 chimpanzee
15 dog
16 frog
17 hen
18 cow
19 lion
20 elephant
21 horse
22 sheep
23 bird
24 rooster


– Unpack the .zip file containing the cards and the sound clips.
– Print and optionally laminate all the cards and the check sheet.
– Burn the .wav files on a (music) cd and make sure the original order of the animal sound clips is maintained. The numbers on the check sheet correspond with the numbers on the cd. Try to add a 10 second pause between each sound. Alternatively play the animal sound clips straight from your (laptop) computer if you have one in the classroom.
– Hand out the bingo cards and make sure that every student has 6 chips (or something similar). Make sure you have enough chips yourself to put on the check sheet.

Let’s play

– The object of the game is to match the animal sound clips to the corresponding pictures.
– Turn on the cd and put it on random or shuffle play . This way the outcome of the game is truly random.
– When a student calls out a BINGO, you check this on your check sheet. If the BINGO is correct the student collect a small prize or a sticker.
– You can make the game a little easier by playing all the sounds in advance and explaining something about the animal.
– You can make the game more difficult by handing out two or more cards to one student.
