Teach your Students Hispanic Culture, Vocabulary, and Have Fun with this Mexican Bingo Game

Updated: Sep 25, 2023


This Mexican Bingo is a fun and wonderful game for Hispanic Heritage Month. Students can learn or review Spanish vocabulary words and then play this fantastic game. This game is played very similar to Bingo. The players receive a playing card, in a 4×4 grid, with a total of 16 squares. These cards are filled with pictures instead of numbers.

In this particular game, the caller will have a deck of 100 calling cards. The caller will shuffle the cards and then choose a card from the deck. The caller will call out the word and the players will place a bean over the picture if they have it on their card. (In the original game, the caller or singer, will come up with a poetic way to describe the card they've pulled from the deck. In the original game, there are descriptions for each word that can just be read or sang.) In this case, I have added some quarter page calling cards as an extra activity for your students. You can divide the 100 cards among all your students and have them come up with a way to describe the pictures. If you have a Hispanic Heritage Night or Multicultural Night, you can play this game with parents and students, and use the card descriptions from the students when calling out the cards.

Before the game, you will need to decide how they will win; in a row, column, diagonal, four corners, or the most popular- completing the whole card and then shouting, "Loteria!".

What a fun way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month! Teach your students some hispanic culture, vocabulary words, and allow them to have fun while learning!

This game includes 45 unique playing cards and 100 calling cards with a colored background.

Also, 45 unique playing cards and 100 calling cards with a white background to save on ink.
