This resource is aimed at assisting oral pair work. Once pupils have been taught the topic of jobs they do to earn their pocket money, each person is given a grid, and they need to colour in approximately 3-5 squares (depending on the time available) without letting their partner see. These squares are the "ships".
Pupils then need to take it in turns to ask their partner if they do a certain job on a certain day, for example if they babysit on a Monday, if they wash the dishes on a Thursday.
If this matches up with one of their partner's coloured in squares it is a "hit", and they get another go. If not, it is a miss and their partner has a go.
The first pupil in the pair to find all their partner's ships, or the one to have found the most within the time given to play is the winner.
For older, or higher ability pupils, the tense could be changed so that the pupils are practising a variety of tenses.
