What equipment or Preparation do I need for the activity?
Print out the snakes and ladders board.
Laminate (although not necessary) unless you want to reuse for another lesson.
Cut out the 30 cards and shuffle them all.
Describe the Resource:
This snakes and ladders activity can be adapted for topics where there is an option of two.
-Good and bad manners of eating and drinking
-Good deeds and bad deeds
-Characteristics of Prophets as opposed to characteristics of bad examples from stories (eg. Qabil, People of Ad)
This can be used within a lesson or as a revision activity. The aim is to remind the students of how to apply what they’ve learnt during the year/ lesson into their everyday life.
There are 30 cards altogether. 15 move forwards and 15 move back. The aim of the game is to reach 100 and each card states how many spaces backwards or forwards a team can go. The game ends when all cards have been chosen or when someone reaches 100 or whenever the teacher sees fit. The winner is the one closest to 100.
This activity can be carried out as a whole class activity (splitting the class into two) or students can play in small groups. Either way encourage competitiveness to get the good deeds.
