"Arrrrgh! Ahoy thar, Mateys!"
Pirates, Treasure and all that goes with it!
Each child received a treasure box this week to keep at school to put treasures we find outside and around school. We kicked off this idea by reading the book, above, How I Became a Pirate. We dressed up like pirates and set about looking for treasure!
It was Bridget's idea to paint some rocks we found outside to look like GOLD!
Jane drew a wonderful map of the playground . . .
Because Pirates live on boats, we did some water experiments this week. Everyone helped to fill up the water tub . . .
And we found things that floated or sank . . .
Outside, "X" marked the spot for us to find some treasure!
