Individual Action BINGO

Ask a Question

  • This bingo game details several ways that individuals can lessen their emissions and impact on the environment.
  • A teacher's guide, printable bingo boards, and links to helpful sources are included in the resource.

Teaching Tips


  • This game is fun and will get students thinking and talking about individual actions that can positively impact the environment. 
  • The bingo cards are available in color and black and white. 

Additional Prerequisites

  • Students should have some background knowledge on climate change and carbon footprints.
  • Teachers may need to explain and give examples of some of the activities on the bingo squares.


  • This resource would be a great activity in any class that is discussing climate change, carbon footprints, and the power of individual choices and actions. 
  • For younger students, this resource would work well as a checklist of potential actions after the initial bingo game ends. Students could set individual climate action goals for themselves and discuss their goals with their families.
  • For older students, this resource could make a great conversation starter. Students who mark a space on the bingo card when it is called can speak to a partner, group, or the whole class about what that action looks like in their life and how it fits into their lifestyle. 
  • Other resources on this topic include this SubjectToClimate lesson on calculating your carbon footprint and this video on how individual actions can impact carbon emissions.
