Ahoy Instructavillians! Today's instructable will show you how to use Educational Pirate Battleship to enhance a learning activity with school aged children! I created the game while helping out with a math MTSS group in the school where I work, but the general game idea can be used in any academic area.
Recommended Age: K--12+
Subject Areas: This game can be used in: All subject areas & Cross Curriculum (more on this later)
Learning Objective: Creating an interactive game that allows you to use many states standards for art, following directions, social skills, math, language and more to be used to teach a variety of subjects
Educational Pirate Battleship© can be used in any subject area by any school aged child. For the purpose of this instructable we will use the game in a math MTSS setting.
The game must be played with at least two players, but can also be played by a team.
Basic Game Rules:
Shots fired must be drawn using a straight line from the teams ship, no curvy lines from the ship. The canon ball can be no larger than the erase on the end of a pencil. Each ship must be hit three different times at three different locations of the ship in order to sink it. Hits should have an X place through them. Be good sports and have fun!
Your own creativity can come to play here. I would liken this to house rules in other games like Monopoly. As we go through this instructable I will attempt to point out where other rules can come into play.
While I'm keeping the copyright, I do want any one out there to use the idea in their classroom with my blessing. One day I might actually take this game to a game maker and it's for that reason that I'm holding onto the rights.
