Coordinate Grid Battleship

See inside

This is a Battleship game played on a coordinate grid with both axes x and y ranging from -5 to 5. The x axis runs horizontally, and the y axis runs vertically. Together, the two axes can name any point on the grid.

In order to play, each player will need to take turns with the computer, making sure the other player cannot see the screen.

First, each player will place their five ships. Then players will take turns, launching attacks at various coordinates on their opponent's ships. The first player to destroy all five of their opponent's ships wins.

Be sure to check out my book of weekly 4th grade Scratch/math lessons.
