Weather Forecast Battleship

A paper version of the old boardgame. Using vocabulary!

Each student gets 2 pages, exactly the same. I usually staple them together. The front page will be used to take notes later.

On the second page the students draw 5 ships.

Air Craft Carrier (5 squares)
Battleship (4 squares)
Cruiser (3 squares)
Submarine (2 squares)
Patrol Boat (2 squares)

They can draw them where-ever they like vertically or horizontally. They CANNOT draw them diagonally or overlapping. Remind them to keep it a secret.

Once they finish drawing they should cover their paper.

They will make pairs and play rock-paper-scissors. The loser/winner asks first.

They guess the location of their partner's ship by making a sentence. i.e. what is the weather forecast for tomorrow in Abashiri (or whatever place name you want to use.)

Their partner will check their second page. If there is a ship they say 'hit' and the partner who asked will draw a circle on their memo paper. If there is no ship, they say 'miss' and the person who asked will draw an X on their memo paper.

Once all the squares of a ship are hit the student must say 'sunk'

The goal is to sink all 5 of their partner's ships.

The present downloadable handout is intended for high school students at Intermediate (B1) and Upper-intermediate (B2) level. It was designed for strengthening your students' Listening, Speaking and Reading skills. It focuses on the topic and words of Weather.
