Karyn from teachbesideme.com homeschools 4 children, and to help them learn The Periodic Table of Elements, she built a custom Battleship game board that uses 4 laminated copies of the table to lay the ships upon using dry-erase markers.
The kids can then mark where they want to place their ships by circling rows of 2, 3, 4, and 5 elements on the lower table.. They play by calling out coordinates. If they miss they put an X on the spot they chose on the upper table. If they get a hit, they circle it. They can continue playing until one person sinks all of another person’s ships.
