Using snakes and ladders to elucidate concepts

On twitter and from the most recent GA conference ( that I couldn’t attend! ) it was evident that Geodebs was all over games in the classroom and it inspired me to have a go at making climate change slightly more engaging. The topic is somewhat over done across key stage 3, 4 and 5 and quite often the actual lessons tend to be quite dry so getting some games is was an aim.

I went with a Snakes and Ladders format, got some blockbuster music to open it up and added an evaluative aspect to see what the kids thought was decent about it. The kids enjoyed playing and even suggested some great ideas for development, when I teach it again after half term, I think I will make more of the knowledge that I hope the pupils can take from the game!

See what you think!
