"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!
