Have a look at the preview to see what these games look like. A list of 8 vocabulary words is written in the left column, and random numbers 1 - 20 are written on the top in numeric form.

This will give students an opportunity to see the plural forms of the words. There is not an answer key included with this resource due to the number of possible responses. This resource includes 40 different vocabulary words related to the theme. You get five versions of the game. How to play: Print out one page of the version of this game that you want to use per student. Students draw circles to represent their boats on the grid at the top of the game board.

Eight school related vocabulary words are written in the vertical column and random numbers 1 - 20 are written in the boxes at the top. To choose a square, the player must say a word on the left and a number at the top. The vocabulary words have (M) or (F) written next to them instead of articles in case they need to say un or une for a singular word. All of the vocabulary they’ll need is written right on the game sheet. Each game sheet includes two battleship grids, one for the student and one for keeping track of guesses.
