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:
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.
