Environmental science is an age old science and its impact on health has been documented during ancient period in India. Since then lot of measures were taken by the government of various countries to improve environmental sanitation. A pre experimental research design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of snake and ladder game on environmental sanitation. Purposive sampling technique was used to select 60 middle school children. The data was collected by using a structured questionnaire prepared by the researcher. Snake and ladder game on environmental sanitation was administered to the middle school children and was evaluated. The collected data were tabulated, analyzed and interpreted by using descriptive and inferential statistics and findings showed that 23 (38.3%) middle school children had good knowledge and 31 (51.7%) had average knowledge in the post test. The calculated ‘t’ value (22.709) was found to be highly significant at the level of p < 0.05. This showed that the knowledge of environmental sanitation among middle school children increased after the snake and ladder game on environmental sanitation. There was a significant association between the level of knowledge and selected socio demographic variables such as occupational status of father and mother.
