PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Having a challenge getting to get students to understand lines of longitude and latitude? This game WILL help your students succeed. There many variations to playing this game, and some you can probably create along the way. I have included a world map, and a United States map for this game.

ONE-TO-ONE COMPUTING DIRECTIONS:
Students each have an electronic device (IPad, laptop, etc.) and open the PowerPoint to the map being used.
Students use the INSERT-SHAPES tool to draw a circle and connect them with lines. They then sit across form each other facing their computers back-to-back.


Paper Version DIRECTIONS:
Have a copy of the map you want to use for each student.
Make sure each student has a pencil, marker, or color pencil to use to mark where their ships are.

RULES:
On the WORLD MAP: Students get 2 two-doted ships, 2 three-doted ships, and 1 four-doted ship. On the U.S. MAP: Students get 2 two-doted ships, and 1 three-doted ships, and 1 four-doted ship.
They begin by secretly placing their ships on the board by marking dots on the crossing points of the coordinate lines. To begin, I would not allow to zig-zag, therefore, they must go in a straight line side-to-side, or diagonally.
Students then call out the coordinates and try to figure out where their opponent's ships are located. If one gets hit, put an “X” over the coordinate.
The first person who finds the other’s coordinates wins!
