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.
Pirate Themed Math Activities
What you need:
- Plastic Coins
- Pattern cards printed out and laminated
- Containers for sorting the coins
Math center 1: Coin Sort
Cut out and laminate the pictures of the coins provided in the free lesson plan at the beginning of this post. Stick these on the side of little containers. Children use plastic coins to sort into the correct containers.
Math center 2: Coin Patterns
Print out and laminate the pattern mats you will find on the next page. Children use plastic coins to make ABAB, ABC, ABBA and AABB patterns.
Math center 3: Roll & Stack
Put some plastic coins in a container. Children throw a dice and stack that number of coins. Throw the dice again, and stack that number of coins on top of the previous stack. Continue until the stack falls over.
Math center 4: Roll & Save
Put some plastic coins in a little container. Children throw a dice, then take that number of plastic coins and put them in a piggy bank. Continue until time is over.
