This is battleship game is designed to review the present tense of the most commonly used verbs. Each student receives a battleship grid on which they place their boats. The opponent then tries to strike their boat by conjugating the verb in the row with the subject in the column. Once all boats have stuck down, the game is over.
This is great practice for regular and irregular verbs. The verbs in the grid are based on the 20 most-used Italian verbs. That means that there are irregulars, and all of our students need the practice with these verbs. Students like the game, and it prompts a lot of oral practice and receptive practice, as they have to also listen to the verb conjugation in order to track how many boats they have left.
I have my students do the entire game in Italian, and it is a ton of fun.
See preview for instructions and a picture of the grid.
Best used for Italian 2-5 and can be easily modified to use other verb tenses.
