To engage sixth-grade science students in learning about the chemical elements, middle school science teacher Janelle Bellotti created a lesson that asked students to build battleship game boards based on the periodic table of elements. Students played their games with a goal to “sink” their opponent’s element ship. “The activity helped students to learn chemistry in a fun way,” said Ms. Bellotti.
