You've got a good collection of materials there.

I did a similar treasure hunt thing except based around prepositions with English club. I don't think the kids I teach have the English level for cryptic clues.

We watched this Mr Bean episode


They did the treasure hunt I planted for them together. Then in teams they drew maps and wrote treasure hunts for each other. It was a ton of fun, they were so motivated to use difficult English in their clues so the other team wouldn't be able to solve it.

I hope to do a similar one except school-wide, for summer camp.

Hey Toni

Thanks for the extra stuff, am hoping my kids will manage the cryptic clues are they are fairly simple e.g. this is where you shoot a goal e.g. football pitch.  But if they are struggling I will be about to help them.  Also planning a period where they make their own treasure map and then write directions for the other teams to try and find their treasure.

Mr Bean vid is great - thanks!

Hi all,

Here are the Pirate Winter Camp materials I prepared. There's enough here for a full week! Worked really well with 5th grade. I got the original materials from icklemonster: http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,1601.0.html. But since then, I expanded on them for a weeklong camp. Enjoy!

The very first day I put the class into crews. The crew came up with a pirate ship name and made a ship's flag. They competed in these groups throughout the entire week. My class was kinda small, only 14 students, but we still made it work and they got really into the competition! Shocker :) The last day I gave funny awards and candy to the winning crew.

Wednesday was cooking day, and we made peanut butter cannonballs. If you do this, make sure you get cereal that is extremely small, like Rice Crispes small. Otherwise rolling the mix into balls didn't work that well- but everyone still had fun making them.

This came to mind but it might not be exactly age-appropriate:

All my "Battleships" games are pirate treasure hunt themed post-Cheonan. I've attached one of my templates (I've done another prettier one but its not tidy). Also attached are faces for a dice for a quiz game without using Powerpoint, or even for awarding group points (I printed and pasted them on a thick cardboard dice).

Finally, I have a two team game tug of war type template that I can tidy and upload later if you want it. Basically pair of pirate cutouts and an enlargeable ship image with clearcut "spaces" for each team to occupy. "If" being the operative word here, because its something better suited to a PPT but the template is all sized up to fit a regular Japanese poster printer for luddite use. Basically, you play any sort of game and 1 point moves that team forward half a space, until they push the other team off the other side of the ship (I do a points multiplier that rises by one every 3 minutes to prevent a stalemate).

Someone totally needs to make a Pirates of the Caribbean themed Quiz/Bomb Game, hey.

just about everything pirate that you could ever need can be found through my friends Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket (yes - I have partied with these pirates in TLAPD) - lots of links

Sorry, it won't let me upload the workbook I made! But it's pretty simple to make.
I set aside 1 hour a day for writing activities, like write your own recipe, do word searches, unscrambles, fill-in-the-blank, ect,
around the vocabulary. 
Good to calm the kids down.
