Snakes and Ladders

This interactive Flash applet simulates a traditional board game and helps children develop early number skills, such as subitizing and counting on, and familiarity with the sequence of numbers 1 to 100. It can be played alone or with another player. Players roll a virtual die and advance on a 100 grid, beginning at lower left and winding through rows that alternate direction. A ladder allows a player to skip ahead, while a snake sends the player backward. The first player to land exactly on 100 is the winner.
