Today we are going to have a go at designing our own treasure maps. Thinking about the symbols you designed last week you are now going to put these onto a map. First, we can have another look at how some maps are designed. They use co-ordinates. Have a look at the ‘Pirate Co-Ordinates’ PowerPoint to discuss how to describe where each symbol is using the up and down axis. Then show examples by moving an object onto the grid/map and ask the children to name the co-ordinate. The can they put the right object into the right co-ordinate when asked? Now you are going to use the template provided and your symbols from last week to fill out your own pirate map! Have fun!
Hot & Spicy – Use the blank template map to plot your symbols.
Mega Hot – Use the co-ordinates template map to plot your symbols.
Are You Nuts – Use the co-ordinates template map to plot your symbols and try and write a key to match.
Extension – Pirate Word search.
