-Student response sheet for game and accountability.
-Test with answer key.
HOW TO PLAY...
-Objective: Students will try to sink all six of the teacher’s ships. With every “hit”, the students receive a question. The goal is to answer 80% (or whatever goal you set with your students) of the questions correctly in order to WIN THE BATTLE.
-Call your Shot: Select a student to call out a number and letter. If the location is a “miss”, ask another student to pick a new coordinate. If the location is occupied by a ship then yell, “Hit!” Record the hit on the blank battleship board being projected to the class. Project the question that corresponds with the coordinate. Give students time to complete the problem and then go over it as a class.
TIPS & TRICKS FOR PLAYING...
-This activity is designed to be a whole class review (teacher vs. the students).
-Print and cut out the questions to be projected. Put them in order to help you access the questions quickly.
-Set a “percentage correct” goal with your class before beginning the review. In my class we have an “aim high” attitude to prepare for the final test. Our goal is usually 80%. Have a reward or incentive for those who achieve the goal.
-Have students track each question and standard on their response sheet. This is crucial in helping students know their weaknesses and will save you time identifying how to help them before the final test.
-A check-box has been included on the Teacher’s Copy of the question bank. Use this, and your battleship board to track what questions have been given.
-I would recommend giving a question and reviewing it immediately after. To help with the honesty in correcting, my students have a pencil and a red pen on their desks. When it is time to correct, they have to sit on their pencils or put it behind them.
-Review and record their scores immediately after this activity so they can take the review sheet home to use as a study sheet. Encourage students to write down the initial problem and to make notes for each problem corrected.
