Teacher Notes Activity – Electron Configuration Battleship Summary Students practice electron configuration – standard and noble gas notations – using the “Battleship” game format. Students may play one-on-one or in teams of two. Students claim this activity is both fun and a very effective method of practicing electron configuration. Time frame: 30 minutes or more. Chemistry Concepts: electron configuration – standard and noble gas notations Materials Game rules overhead transparency periodic tables – laminated or in plastic page protectors (class set) poker chips, dice, etc. (to provide a random selection between 2 choices) markers or crayons books or binders to use as game board dividers (provided by students) Procedure Notes The general format of the game “Battleship” involves placing ships on a grid hidden from the opponent’s view. The opponent “fires” at your ships by naming grid coordinates (e.g. B3). You respond by stating whether the shot was a “hit” or a “miss.” Likewise, you fire at your opponent’s ships.
