Two dice are rolled and the sum calculated. The snail with that number takes one step forwards. The first snail to the end of the race track wins. Before playing the students could be asked to predict which snail will win. Twelve students could be asked to volunteer to be the 'trainers' for each of the snails, their names can be typed into the spaces provided above.
Students could then design their own race boards and make predictions:
