Need reading passages on the Roanoke and Jamestown Settlers?  Check out my latest product! 


BINGO is a fun way to review new concepts and vocabulary words. The words in this BINGO set relate to the topic of Roanoke and Jamestown Settlers and make the perfect review for the eight pages of informational text that are included in this product.  The passages can also be used for CLOSE READING, using any non-fiction graphic organizer (not included).

This product includes:
8 One-Page Passages of Informational Text (930L – 1000L Lexile)
36 Unique Bingo Cards (18 pages with two cards per sheet)
The Caller’s Tracking Sheet
24 Calling Cards Containing Words and Clues

Informational Text
There are eight pages of informational text about the topic: Roanoke and Jamestown Settlers.  The passages cover the following topics:

·        Roanoke Settlement
·        Jamestown Settlement
·        Life at Jamestown; Life as a Settler
·        First, Second and Third Supplies
·        The Starving Time
·        John Rolfe and Tobacco; John Rolfe and Pocahontas
·        Tobacco and Labor Needs; Servitude and Slavery
·        The Powhatan Indian Attacks of 1622

Words that are included:
1607; Attacks of 1622; Brackish; Cash Crop; Colonize; Croatoan; Hogshead; Indentured Servants; Jamestown; John Rolfe; John Smith; King James I; Maize; Pocahontas; Powhatan; Queen Elizabeth I; Roanoke; Sea Venture; Settler; Siege; The Starving Time; Susan Constant, Godspeed, Discovery; Tobacco; Virginia Dare

Although all cards contain the same 24 words, the order on each card is unique.  Each student will find every word on their card.  Of course, this means “blackout” is not a good option – although my students sometimes insisted on playing all the way through and singing out “BINGO” in unison at the end!

This product is great for a large group, class or co-op.!  It can be played in the traditional way where the instructor randomly chooses one of the cards and calls out the word.  Or, to play as a review game, the instructor can read the clue that appears on the card below the BINGO word.
