Playing Battleship is an excellent way for students to practice locating and graphing ordered pairs on a coordinate grid. This product is a set of directions students (and parents!) can use when playing Battleship to practice these 5th grade skills. These directions clearly connect the game to the Common Core standard and explicitly state how to play the game with a partner. Students need a paper with two grids on it (one grid to use to build their ships, and one grid to use to keep track of their guesses). This "game board" is not included in this product. PDF file.
