ActivityDescription
Naumachia is a game I adapted from a Spanish teacher. It is played like the classic game Battleship. Students place ships on a grid, then call out coordinates to try to sink their opponent's ships on the opponent's grid. The coordinates are Latin pronouns and verbs, so to call out a location the student conjugates the verb to match the pronoun. Instructions for the players are on the game board.
