The lesson consists of 3 parts

Stage 1 - individual game ”Bingo”

Students receive worksheets with tasks and Bingo cards with answers of the tasks in squares. Students do sums step by step, find right answers in the Bingo answer card and cross it out. The goal is to fill a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line on the card. Students shout "Bingo!"when they get a full row.

That is a creative task where every student can show his imagination and manifest himself how he wants.
