Battle Ship Vocabulary Game!
« on: May 02, 2017, 05:12:41 AM »
I recently had the privilege to observe another teacher use a battleship game in order to teach pronunciation. It was fun, effective, and was easy for students to understand with minimal learning curve.


The game itself can be adapted to vocabulary/synonyms as well without any issue. Here is what you do:


You print out battleship sheets such as this for example:

https://www.google.com/search?q=battleship+sheet+game&rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS602US602&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi3zczi-tDTAhVC9YMKHRiFCpMQsAQILQ&biw=1163&bih=559#imgrc=1DO3h8-eMmufQM:


You then give a sheet to each student and they get into pairs.


Vertically on the sheet shows #'s and Horizontally shows Letters.


Assign a word to each #.


Now, to teach synonyms you will want to assign the words in the Letter row that have a corresponding synonym in the Vertical # column.


On each of the players sheets, there will be marks where the synonyms line up on the grid. Those marks you make are their ships.


If one student correctly matches a pair of synonyms than they have sunken a ship on their opponents grid.
