Arrrrr matey! Who doesn’t love pirates? Well, except for all of the plundering they did back in the day … but now, looking back in history, they seem to have some sort of romanticized reputation. Children now see pirates as these funny characters full of adventure – which makes pirate-themed teaching materials so great for learning.
For this activity packet, I started by assembling all of the clipart I wanted to use. Some of it were bits and pieces I had collected in preparation for my own set of pirate clipart (which I may still get around to making some day), and other clipart I put together specifically for this packet.
I put together the vocabulary words I wanted to build activities around along with pirate expressions, and then wrote the non-fiction and fiction texts for the literacy parts of the packet.
I think I had the most fun making the Pirate Directions and Treasure Map activities. Here is the cover and the preview pages for the product:
The Pirate Activity Packet is now available in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
