What you do:
Cut snakes from red card stock, add eyes, mouths and using a different
shade of red or orange, make spots on them. On the back, put a review
question on the head end and the answer to it on the tail end. Cut the
snakes in two and put heads in one envelope, tails in another. Make
one snake for every two children in class.
How to play:
Give each child a part of a snake and have them try to find the other
child with the right answer. If smaller children cannot read well,
give the questions to the older children. When all have been put
together have them share with the rest of the class or you scramble
the pieces and do it again a few times depending on time.
