• Upper level primary school students, secondary students
• Large playing board for classroom use or smaller playing boards for small groups, colored buttons or other markers, a playing die
• Make playing board and large playing die.
• Each team will roll the die to see who goes first. The highest roll goes first.
• The team moves its marker however many spaces as indicated by the number rolled.
• Teams alternate turns. When a team/player lands on a space with a written phrase in it they must read the phrase out loud to the other players.* If it is a behavior or attitude which prevents HIV infection the team/player may climb the ladder to the space at the top of the ladder. If it is a behavior or attitude which promotes HIV infection, the team/player is swallowed by the snake and must move to the space marked by the snake's tail. The team/player which reaches HOME SAFE HOME first is the winner.
* Encourage the students to discuss the behaviors and attitudes. Why do some promote infection and why do some prevent it?
