This week we are going to be looking at an actual pirate. Explain that here are lots of famous pirates. Do the children know any names of real or fictional pirates? Maybe someone they have seen on TV or a character from a story or someone they have read about in a book. Show pictures of pirates they may know on slide one of the ‘Famous Pirates PowerPoint’.
Today we are going to learn about a really famous pirate called Blackbeard. Use PowerPoint 1 ‘Famous Pirates’ to teach children about the man Blackbeard and lady Anne Bonney. Then go on to concentrate on Black Beard. Use PowerPoint 2 ‘Black Beard Facts’ to discuss.
