Battleships is a traditional game for two players, who will each need a paper and pencil.

First draw a grid about 8 squares tall and wide. Label the grid with the numbers 1 to 8 along the bottom and letters A to H along the sides. Make sure that each player’s grid is the same! Then, making sure that the other player cannot see what you are doing, mark “your fleet” onto your grid. An aircraft carrier is five squares in one straight line; a battleship four squares in one straight line, a cruiser three squares in one straight line. Each fleet should also have two destroyers (two adjacent squares) and two submarines (single squares). Now try to find your opponent’s fleet by calling out a position on the grid (eg D4 or H8). He must tell you whether you have a “hit” or a “miss”, or if you have sunk a craft (and if so, which craft it is). The first player to sink his opponent’s fleet is the winner.

If you would prefer not to draw your own grids each time, you can find a free printable version of Battleships at Activity Village, here:

Draw these coordinates ..................  (1,2), (2,3), (3,3), (4,2), (3,1), and (2,1),  What shape do you have?

 This activity will allow you to develop your understanding of co-ordinates and shapes.
