Based on the game of battleships, this activity is an effective way of practising grid references and co-ordinates. Children take it in turns to roll two dice and place a counter on the board; the faces of the dice determine the co-ordinates where their counter can go.
Included in the activity are instructions on how to play and two game-boards, each with a grid of 36 faces. One board contains numeric grid references on the y axis and letters along the x axis, the second board has only numeric grid references.
