Battleship for the EFL classroom: 8 players, or 1 box per player.
1. Ss make two lines and ask each other their names, writing them in a vertical list on the board.
2. Ss sit down and write the names on the board in order in the green boxes.
3. As a group, Ss ask 3 others either, "What do you like to do?" or, "Do you like to . . . ?"
* You can lay out the relevant cards on the table or allow the Ss to come up with their own answers.
4. T should now ask the group, while pointing at a student, "What does - like to do?"  Ss should answer.
"He/She likes to . . . ?"
5. T, not the Ss, should write actions on the board if there is only a little time to play.
6. Ss should now write down all the actions.
7. Ss will place 3 ships that are 3 squares long on the board vertically or horizontally, not diagonally.
8. Review HE and SHE as well as YES, HE/SHE DOES.  NO, HE/SHE DOESN'T.
9. Ss will now pick a partner and begin to try to locate the 3 ships asking the following question in turn:
* "Does (name) like to (action)?"  If the ship is in the square the answer should be, "Yes, he/she does."
* If the ship is not in the square the answer should be, "No, he/she doesn't."
* The first S in each pair to locate all three ships is the winner.
* One way to close the game is to ask the S in the 2nd square if they like the 2nd action, and the 3rd S the 3rd
action, e.g. "Josh do you like to dance?"  The S asking the question can write an X or an O in the coordinates.
* This game can be played with many other language targets.  Other good ones are, "Is your (trans.) in (country)?"
or, "Is your (family) in (country)?"
Today's game is for practicing, not teaching, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person singular.
