Battleship Games by Brandi Caldwell
This game is an excellent way to ENGAGE kids in practicing their social studies content.
You will love it because:
Review your social studies content about the New England colonies. Or use it as a preview activity.
Content is aligned with Fifth Grade Social Studies Common Core Content Standard 2
Each group matches all review questions. You are able to make sure that each student participates in the content!
It is versatile and can be played as a whole class game, small group game, or with individual students (3 or more players)
This 11 page pdf file includes the game cards for you to print, instructions, helpful tips and tricks, and two sizes of game boards.
Once you create this, it can be used over and over.
Engaging and Fun: It is so fun, your kids will ask to play it at recess. NO JOKE! My class loves these games and chooses them over traditional recess games.
Its an easy center activity.
Once you play a few times, you can use other Battleship games to review information or practice skills. The same procedure will be followed, just different cards.
It encourages cooperation and teamwork.
