Those who are well versed with the history of bingo, might know that this game was once used as an educational tool in Germany. Surprised? Yes, this game of cards which has been popular with the seniors since decades was once used to stimulate the brain of kids in German schools. In fact, studies have proven that playing bingo helps the brain activity of elderlies who are losing their faculties and they are able to keep themselves sharp. Moreover, bingo cards are easy to make, by using downloading them from websites that contain printable bingo sites. Improves your memory – Bingo is a game of chance. However, its online version presents an equal amount of fair game. That means, this game is decided on the luck , rather than skill. However, certain amount of skill is also necessary to keep a track on the numbers that are called out on the online bingo site. The software of such a site will take care of the daubing process, that leaves the player to concentrate on the numbers and keep a mental record of the numbers he has on cards. This way, bingo helps an individual to sharpen his or her memory. Dispenses information - Bingo, in its traditional form, has proved quite educational to kids and adults alike. As this game has a lot of flexibility, the cards can be used in different ways for different purposes. If you like any topic, you can take icons or images pertaining to that topic and get them published on the bingo cards. For example, if you are teaching to kindergarten kids, and you want them to learn the alphabet letters in a fun and non-boring manner. Then, instead of numbers using the alphabets can also work. Since it's for kids, the fact that there will be only 26 numbers on the cards would not matter at all. Teaches new skills – Studies have found that people who dabble their hand in bingo and its online counterpart on regular basis, have better mental agility. What's more, their memories are more sharper than others who don't indulge in these games. They are quick to respond and have better mental reflexes. Learning Mathematics through bingo – As bingo is a number game that involves cards, mathematics is of course involved. Teachers can use bingo cards to encourage the children in striking off the numbers quickly. For example, if you call out 157, nearest to 10, then the children can strike out 160. The child who wins will get 10 out 10 in the maths test. Besides, using bingo as a tool to teach children new things, this game offers many psychological benefits including social bonding, feeling good and upping the self-esteem, etc.
