Biology Games

 Games For Assessment

Games are a good way of engaging our students. They can be also be used to motivate and energise students for learning as well as an AFL tool.

There are a number of premade games below and these can be used in a variety of ways in the classroom. They can also be adapted to suit your individual class. Just select which questions you wish to use or add your own.

Snakes and Ladders

Snakes and Ladders can be played by using any of the question sets below. Simply print the questions out onto card, or if you don't like chopping up card, print them onto labels and stick them onto flash cards!

You will then need to print out the snakes and ladders board. Download the template below and laminate. It is fine in A4 but you will need to use the smaller couters. Print in A3 if you have access to an A3 printer.
