Have you ever played BINGO? 1st graders have been learning about a similar game from Mexico called Loteria. Check out their work below and find out how we made and played the game!
Brainstorming for our very own Loteria game:
Students brainstormed different toys, games, foods, animals, places, people, and plants that are a part of their culture.

Students learned about the traditional game of Loteria, and then looked at artwork inspired by the game. Check out the work of Teresa Villegas at http://www.teresavillegas.com.
