Snakes and ladders is a classic children's game transposed to the MFL classroom. Teams compete by moving their counter along the path avoiding the snakes and climbing the ladders where possible.Serpents and steps is one of 10 FREE whole class games to teach English at iclanguage.com.
Snakes and ladders uses it's familiar game format to teach languages. Teams take it in turns to roll a spinning dice wheel - their counter lands on a picture square - the team must name or describe the picture in the target language. If the class decides the language was acceptable, the team can remain on the square by clicking the tick. Otherwise, they must return to their former square by clicking on the cross.
Landing at the base of a ladder or the head of a snake works the same as with the board game snakes and ladders. From the head of a snake your counter will slide down to it's tail. From the base of a ladder, your team's counter will climb to it's top. The language (speech and text) for a picture is available by clicking on the question mark once the counter has moved.
If you land on the bottom of a ladder, or on the head of a snake, you do not have to name an item.
