Snakes And Ladders
Students play a snakes and ladders board game, and make comparative sentences using adjective cards.
Time: 30 minutes
- Make one copy of the Game Board for each group.
- Make one copy of the Conversation Cards for each group, and cut as indicated.
Students get into groups of 4 or 5 people.
Give one Game Board and one set of Conversation Cards to each group. Ask the students to put the cards in a pile face down.
Ask students to get two coins for their group, and a space marker for each person.
How to use the coins:
Heads, heads = move 1
Tails, tails = move 2
Heads, tails = move 3
Students put their space markers on Start. The first student flips the two coins, moves the corresponding number of spaces on the game board, and follows the instructions.
- Head of the snake = move to the tail of the snake
- Bottom of the ladder = move to the top of the ladder
- Starred space = take a card from the pile and make a sentence using the word to compare two things.
