Battleship Coordinate Grid Game

An activity to practice using ordered pairs.

Use this activity to consolidate your students’ understanding of coordinate grids.

Students fire shots by calling out ordered pairs, e.g. (4, 6). There is space for students to record their guesses to ensure they don’t double up.

This is a great resource to use as a math center activity.

This resource includes:

• an instruction sheet
• a battleship coordinate grid board.

Curriculum

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.A.1

Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numb...

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.A.2

Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.NS.C.8

Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
