Spreadsheet game (KS3)

This snakes and ladders style game was created for use in KS3 lessons, principally Unit 7.4 (Spreadsheet applications) with Year 7 and Unit 8.4 (Spreadsheet Modelling) with Year 8. It was also used with a Level 1 Functional Skills ICT class.

This game can be played in one of two ways. It can be played as a whole-class activity on an interactive whiteboard by dividing the class into two teams. Alternatively, if you are in a computer suite the class can play against one another in pairs.

    Awesome game! I used to play a game like this when I was little called “Chutes and Ladders”. I think you probably got this idea from that game, but I like it allot! 😀
