Students will play this game in pairs or teams. Using laptops are best. Each team will need their own laptop in order to open up their own game template and hide their screen from their opponent (just like the real game!)
Students hide their ships anywhere on their coordinate grid. Teams take turns calling out ordered pairs, trying to locate their opponents ships. Students will record hits and misses.
The teacher or teams can decide on rules for winning. I usually tell the students at the end of the hour to decide on a winner based on who sunk the most ships.
This is a FAVORITE game that students beg to play all year!
