Bug XY Battleship Game

Bug Exterminator:

Once you’ve created a creature lets play a little game – Carefully cut around the 150*150 square in which you created you creature. Stick to the grid lines when you are cutting.

  1. Grab another piece of grid paper and find a place around the table facing your fellow students.
  2.  Without letting anyone else see – place your  bug square somewhere on the larger grid paper and line it up along the grid lines.
  3. Moving around with one student at a time choosing another student whose bug they are going to try and target. Call out there name and a X,Y coordinate on the grid.
  4. If your name is called the carefully map that pint on your grid – if the point ‘hits’ your bug call out ‘hit!’
  5. When your bug has been hit three times – your out. The last bug left alive is the winner.IMG_0934-1


Move around the circle again and show everyone your bug. Discuss how you think the process of abstraction has changed your drawing – is the drawing better or worse or just different? How is it better or worse or different and why? With the group decide what your bug should be called
