Welcome to Battleshapes! Battleshapes is a game that will show your students that learning can be fun! Battleshapes is similar to "Battleship" but instead has been modified to include the area and perimeter of objects! There are 3 game modes for the students to choose from. You can pick specific students to work on game mode #1 (to increase their confidence in area & perimeter), or challenge your confident students to play game mode #3 (dealing with irregular shapes!). Or give your students the choice of which game they play!
This product includes a .PDF and an editable Microsoft Word file. The Microsoft Word file can be edited in case you want to change the rules or modify the game to suit your class needs! I did use a customized font (which you can see in the .pdf file). You will notice that the Microsoft Word file will look slightly different (as you will not have the custom font installed on your computer). However, you can change the font to whatever you want!
I would suggest printing Battleshapes out in colour and making it double sided (this makes it really convenient for the students as each of them will have their own rules to read). After printing the product out, I would either laminate it or place it into plastic page protectors (as your students can use dry erase markers and it will be re-usable for many years to come this way). However, you could also print it out on black and white and have the students use pencil. Your choice!
Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy Battleshapes!
