The printable battleship template has 4 different battleships to sink from an aircraft carrier to a cruiser. Each ship is assigned a color and letter so you can choose which you want to use. The big ship will take up 5 squares and the little ship will take up 2 squares on the grid. 

First, decide where you will put your own fleet on the My Battleship grid. You will fill in the grid squares with the color or letter corresponding to each ship. Once both players have this done you’re to play. 

Rules of Battleship

The first player will guess a grid location where the enemy’s ships may be. For example A1 or B5.

If your opponent says hit you found part of a ship so fill in the square. You can keep guessing until you do not have a hit. If you do not guess correctly put an X in the squares with no ships. 

Then the next player goes and guesses where the first players ships may be located on the battleship worksheet. 

Here is a sample Battleship game on the battleship grid worksheet.
