Battleship

Objective
Any grammar that requires two parts of a sentence be joined.

PREP

Make a grid. The left side of the grid will be one half of a sentence, e.g. “Let’s ~ “, “How about we ~ ” etc. The top of the grid will be the second half, “go to a movie.” The top-left square is blank.

PLAYING

  1. Have students place their battleships on the grid, vertical and horizontal only. Ships can vary depending on grid size.
  2. Students take turns asking each other questions to find their partner’s ships.
  3. If an attack hits, the opponent agrees with the sentence. If it misses, the opponent misses.
  4. The game continues until all of their opponent’s ships have been found.
