This week, explain that we are going to learn some more about Pirates and their ships. What do they understand a pirate to be? Use PowerPoint to explain and go through who were pirates, who was in the crew, the pirate code, pirate clothing and Booty. Do pirates exist today? Get discussions going!


Go through PowerPoints 1-4 discussing life on a boat etc and then about the ships. Look at the different parts of the ship as our activity is going to be looking and labelling one.

Mega Hot – Complete the pirate ship labelling using the key words at the bottom.

Are You Nuts – Complete the more detailed pirate ship labelling from memory (Answer Sheet Provided).


Extension – Design a pirate ship flag.
