For many people, studying for any kind of science class isn’t any fun. There are many ways that people can study this topic, from flashcards to group study sessions. What if there was a way to shake up how you retain the information and make it fun? How can this be accomplished? Why not try a classic game of bingo.
Just in case you aren’t aware of it works, bingo is a rather simple game. It involves a set of numbers and letters that are called out to match letters and numbers that are on a card of sorts. For example, B12 or O50. Placing a marker of some sort on the coordinating letter and number combination, the goal is to try and get five in a row, or any pattern that is designated. The first to call bingo and have marked accurate combos wins.
So, how can this game apply to studying? Well, by creating a card with the answers to the study material in place of the letters and numbers, you can create a bingo game to test your knowledge. Be sure to mix up the answers on each person’s cards and having answers they will have to know without notes or a textbook. This will help test them on their knowledge. You can have one designated person ask you questions and if you have the correct answer to the question, you can mark it if it is on your card. If you are correct, you will have marked an answer that will help you get your bingo.
By adding the element of competition and some fun to the studying, people are more incentivized to memorize the material they need to retain for their upcoming test. This type of game makes studying more entertaining for people, which helps them focus better, rather than studying so hard that they are no longer retaining the material like they should.
Don’t let studying bum you out any longer. Science can be a hard topic or just boring for some, but now, with this revised version of bingo, studying for this subject can be fun for you and your study group. The more the merrier with this game. If you want to make it even better for everyone, have small prizes ready for the winner of each round. Now you can earn that A on your test without the boredom.
