My 8 year old son loves games and I love when they reinforce something he is learning in his homeschool curriculum currently-- or in the past.  While he knows his numbers 1-100, our Hundreds Chart Battleship Game is a great way to build on number patterns and strategy skills.


It is super simple to put together and lends itself to many exciting games of battleship that day and beyond!


Cool Math Games


  1. Print out a 100s Chart - Use this free colorful hundreds chart or this black and white one from  All Our Days} and use a laminator for durability.  
  2. Grab two dry erase markers and several mosaic gems.  You could play without the mosaic gems, but I thought it was helpful to have a 3D visual of our "ships."   
  3. Find an old shoe box top, file folder, or book to use as a divider to put between you and the other player.

Each player claims a group of 2, 3, and 4 numbers either horizontally or vertically.  For instance you could mark your battleships on 22 and 23-- 78, 88, 98-- and 1, 2, 3, 4.  

Players take turns calling out numbers, and the opponent either states "hit" or "miss."  We found it helpful to make an x over the "misses" and either checked or circled the numbers that were "hit."

Another option is to set the hundreds chart up as coordinates, and calling out a number and letter marked along top and side of hundreds board {ex. B,5 = 15}.

When a battleship has been destroyed, my son had a great time yelling out, "BOOM!"

The first player to destroy all three of  your opponents battleships, wins!
