Join us for an interactive game and live virtual visit to Prospect Park Zoo to see and learn about the history of the zoo and its animal-inspired art and buildings! This virtual program will be hosted by our friends at Turnstile Tours in partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society, Prospect Park Alliance, and Brooklyn Cultural Adventures Program.
We'll be playing animal art bingo!
In preparation for bingo, please follow these instructions:
- Step 1: Choose one of the bingo boards - Look at the three bingo boards and decide which you'd like to use to play bingo this Friday.
- Step 2: Identify your team name - Now that you have your board, look at the team name in the upper right-hand corner. You will be playing with one of three teams: Team Zebu, Team Sea Lion, or Team Peacock
- Step 3: Print out or make your bingo board - Print out your bingo board at home or at a local library or make your own bingo board. See our tips below:
- Printing: If you print out the bingo board, it's fine to print in color or black and white. To learn how to print at a nearby BPL branch check our printing hub here.
- Making your own bingo board: Get a piece of paper and a pencil, crayon, or marker and write in the names of the animals on your homemade bingo board. You can even make your own animal drawings too! If you want to play on one of the teams and are making your own board, please make sure to arrange the animal clues in the same way on your homemade board as the team you want to play with. You're also welcome to play without a team if you'd rather make your own bingo board and arrange the animals and clues however you like. There are many ways to play!
- Step 4: Come ready to play on Friday morning! When you log into Zoom on Friday morning, please make sure you have your bingo board and a pencil, crayon, or marker ready. Even if you don't have a bingo board on Friday morning, you can still enjoy Friday's program by typing in the chat when you see one of the animals we're looking for, helping someone who does have a bingo board at home, or keeping track of all of the animals we see in animal art at the zoo!
