Pirate Math Ideas
Buried Treasure Math
Bury tiny treasure
chests (the kind the school nurse gives for a lost tooth) in the sandbox
or hide them around the room. Could be used as a color recognition activity
as well as
a counting activity. (Ask each child how many boxes they found,
how many red ones, how many blue ones, etc.)
Treasure Color Recognition and Counting
Cover an old box
with bright paper and lots of trim. Inside the box put different treasures.
Again use as a color recognition activity and counting activity.
(Ask one child to bring you 2 blue bandanas from the box,
another to bring you 4 red strings of beads, etc).
You could also put
various shapes of paper in various colors inside the box.
(Ask one child to bring you 4 green triangles, another to bring you 2 yellow
and 1 purple square, etc.) Good color, shape recognition activity.
I made drew 3 sizes of pirate chests and then made jewels out of
glittery foam in 3 sizes so the kids can sort them to the right chest.
Counting Gold Coins
I also bought a wood chest at Hobby Lobby and painted it and
bought gold coins so
we could practice counting. I have the kids roll a dice and pull out that
many gold coins.
