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:
Ich liebe Radfahren.
The very last would be:
Ich hasse Schach
The partner will then say whether the guess is a “hit” (getroffen), “miss” (Wasser) or when they have completed sinking a whole ship, “sunk” (versenkt). Students can use the second grid to make note of their guesses.
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 every one of his/her opponent’s battleships.

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.
