Periodic Table Battleship: You Sank My Beryllium!

 |  |  |  January 12, 2016


What if the classic game of Battleship got geekier? Karyn Tripp of the homeschooling education site Teach Beside Me decided to make this game geekier and educational in order to teach the kids the elements. So she created a Periodic Table edition.

She created the game using four laminated copies of the Periodic Table which were labeled alphabetically by row and column, then inserted into two file folders with jumbo paper clips.

“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 keep going until one person’s elemental ships are all sunken, and on the bottom of the ocean.

This is an inventive way to teach the Periodic Table, and it breathes new life into an old game. I bet kids learn very quickly using this method.
