Pelmanism

Students work in small teams of 3 – 6. They shuffle the cards and lay them all face down on the table. Students take it in turns to select two cards, aiming to find a matching pair. If they find one, they keep the cards and take another turn. If not, they must return the cards to where they found them.

Hobbies Battleships

Instructions

Many students will have played this game before in English, although some will need instructions.

Students should work with a partner and use one worksheet each. On the top grid, they should secretly mark their battleships. One battleship should be 4 squares long, one three squares long and two battleships of two squares length:

XXXX

XXX

XX

XX

Example:

Hobbies Battleships example

Once they have their battleships in place, they should guess where their partner’s battleships are by creating sentences. The very first square on the board, for example, would be:

J’adore faire du vélo or j’adore le vélo

The very last would be:

Je déteste les échecs or je déteste jouer aux échecs

The partner will then say whether the guess is a “hit” (touché), “miss” (raté) or when they have completed sinking a whole ship, “sunk” (coulé). Students may use the bottom grid to mark on the hits and misses of their opponent’s ships.

If the guess “hits” a ship, the guesser has another go. If it is a miss, play passes to the other player.

The winner is the first to sink all of his/her opponent’s battleships.
