Pirate Themed Math Activities

The Pirates Themed Activities were a lot of fun and the kids had a blast! They loved making Pirate Hats and Telescopes, Sorting coins and making patterns with these, going on a treasure hunt and making their very own Pirate story up and putting this in a big class book. The Pirate Themed Math Activities are great for developing your young learners’ counting, sorting and fine-motor skills.
