"Practice grammar with !Batalla!
Students try to find hidden ""ships"" by putting together grammatically correct sentences matching subjects and verbs. In this version of the game, students must form commands.
Make a copy of the selected game for each student. Students should fold the top of the page up so that their grids are hidden from their partners. Each student should mark
his/her grid with the four sets of ""ships"". Students then try to find one another's ships by making commands.
Student A forms a command: Juan, ven conmigo.
If Student B has a ship in that space, s/he repeats
the same command: SÃ, Juan, ven conmigo. If not,
s/he forms a negative command: No, Juan, no
The first student to find all of the ships OR the one with
the most ""hits"" at the end of the time limit wins.
There are 6 different versions of the game:
Batalla! Basic has only tÃº commands. Game 1 is only regular verbs, and Game 2 is irregular.
