Pirates - Stick Puppet Templates

Pirates - Stick Puppet Templates

10 pirate templates to make stick puppets. 5 boys and 5 girls. Students decide what sort of emotion they would like their pirate to have and draw the face accordingly (eg happy, excited, sad, surprised, angry …) If desired, your students could draw a different emotion on two of the templates (same pirate) and then stick them back to back with the craft stick in between. Then they can simply turn the puppet around during their performances to show a different emotion. Also included is a pirate captain (face already drawn) and a blank template to make additional pirates/props. 2 formats for your printing convenience: ♦ boy pirates + captain on one page / girl pirates + captain on one page. ♦ six of the same pirate on each page. A super-fun activity to encourage oral language development. Great for ‘Talk like a pirate day’. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Divided into the original 34 chapters and displayed in a slightly old-fashioned style, it is easily printed and bound in a duotang or binder. In addition to the original text, after each chapter you will find: Questions that focus on the reader’s experience and perceptions, and are under the title ‘Ask Yourself’. These may be used to stimulate discussion or for a written assignment of your choice. Twelve words, typed in a suitably nautical style, which can be used as a spelling test (oral or written) or as an opportunity to expand the reader’s vocabulary. (Definitions are not included. Outdated terms are generally not selected.) A notebook page, imitating a diary page which Jim could have had in the time period, on which the reader should summarize (in their best penmanship and style) the chapter just read. Two pages of extra questions and activity suggestions are found at the end of the book. No pirate tale can compare with this one. Prepare yourself for subtle treachery, rough adventure, vivid characters and first class writing! Bonus! This title includes a separate file of additional Treasure-Island-themed notebooking pages.

Building a pirate ship! Two hour design and technology/topic lesson

Building a pirate ship! Two hour design and technology/topic lesson

I have to be honest, this is my favourite lesson in my shop. I have taught it numerous times and it has always been fun for pupils and staff! This lesson allows pupils to help the Captain get as much treasure as possible to the ship by designing a boat which will hold lots of gold (or marbles to you and I). Once you've explained the task, pupils draw designs for a new, weight bearing boat and explain how they're going to test the boat to show the Captain (the teacher) how good their design is. After that, they build their model out of plasticine, test their boats in water and record the results. The winning team always gets treasure in the form of golden chocolate coins!
