A take on the classic Battleship game for the ESL classroom. This particular example is practicing using the verb "to be" but the game file can be edited to practice different verb forms (i.e. Present Continuous).
Students are given a board where they must draw "ships" on a grid with pronouns on one axis and adjectives on the other access. Their partner must guess where their ships are hidden by using choosing a pronoun and adjective and making a sentence or question with the verb "to be." For example: Are you angry? or You are angry.
The other student will answer yes or no depending if they had drawn a ship on that square. Students take turns going back and forth guessing squares until all the ships are found.
Also included is a PowerPoint file which allows the teacher to play with the whole class, either as a class activity or as a demonstration on how to play.
