Safety Snakes Activity

This online safety activity gives pupils the opportunity to practice their coding skills and refresh their knowledge of online safety whilst enjoying a game of snakes and ladders. The activity challenges pupils to create the correct algorithm and program to ensure their Bee-Bot moves around the mat to the correct square, climbing any ladders and going down any snakes. If pupils land on squares with online safety ‘Do and Don’ts’ tips they discuss these with their partner. This resource include an instructional video, Bee-bot mats, a presentation as well as the opportunity to use an online Bee-Bot simulation if you do not have a Bee-Bots on hand.
