Tibetan natives refer to Everest as Chomolungma or Qomolangma meaning “Goddess Mother of Mountains”. The Nepalese people know the mountain as Sagarmatha, which means “Forehead in the Sky.” A British surveyor, Andrew Waugh named the Mountain “Everest” in 1856.

- Cut out each square from your copy of the template card. Place the letters in one container and the images in a second container.
Preparation for Participants:
- Distribute a blank B.I.N.G.O. card and a template card to each participant.
- Each participant must cut out each individual image from the template.
- Glue the individual images into the square of their choice.
- Teacher picks one letter and one image from the respective containers and calls it out to the participants. E.g. G-Ice Axe
- The students who glued that image in the column of that letter can mark it on their card.
- The teach will replace the letter and image to their respective containers.
- Repeat steps 1-3 until the first student calls B.I.N.G.O.
