Battleship! Art History Style!

Was trying to think up a good review game for Art History class and Ms Purtee said, "Why not ask the students?" 

In Art History, the students already write the quiz questions so it only made sense to ask them what game we should play for a review. The first paper I turned over read, Battleship! I knew I had a winner!

First step was getting the questions together. I put them in a PowerPoint like the one above. Most questions weren't multiple choice but you get the idea.

By the way, the answer is B. Chicken.

We created the boards on sheets of manilla paper. The larger square is that table's playing piece. The smaller squares are so they can keep track of the other tables. We had four tables playing at once.

If you answer a review question correctly, you could take a shot at any table in the room. There was some competition and I might say, it even got a little ugly ;)

About to answer the next question.

Anticipation.. waiting to hear if it's a hit or not a hit.

Not a bad way to spend a Friday.


  1. So what happened if they hit the battleship spots? I'd love to do this in my class

    1. Just like in the game, their ship would be suck. Once all their ships were lost their table was out of the game. It was fun playing four tables because they would gain up against each other :)

    2. Sunk, not suck lol, but I guess it did suck if your ship sunk
