X Marks the Spot (year 2, week 40)

We're finally at our last official homeschooling unit of the year!  And we've decided to make it pirate themed!  If you haven't heard yet, we're taking a pirate themed road trip this summer, so this last theme unit is a great way to introduce all things piratical to my kids.

We started the week with some pirate vocabulary and movies.  It was very fun to hear the kids say "Arrgg!"

As the week continued, our theme sort of evolved to "the treasures of the sea."  I picked up a few bags of sea shells at the thrift store, so we looked at them and watched videos of how the creatures live.  We probably won't get to the beach this summer, but a pirate-y trip of beach treasure hunting would be lots of fun too.

I brought the beach to the kids with some sand play dough and buried treasure (dollar store jewels).  The dough didn't photograph well, but the kids enjoyed it.
