The 7th-grade Pep Class created their own Battleship board games to focus on collaboration, communication, mental stimulation, and competition as part of their Mental Health unit.  Students Ella Bouwman and Ari Nelson explained that the unit began with a video focused on brain health. Then, they used paper to create a grid and then used that to play Battleship with a partner similar to how you play the board game. They said they learned that it is important to put down their phones and interact with each other face to face and to have a positive attitude. Moriah Doyle and Hawthorne Roehr agreed that it taught them about having a positive attitude and added that the process of creating and playing the game stimulated their brains in a new way. They all agreed that it was fun and exciting and would recommend the game to other classes.
