All the tasks of this challenge require students to find equivalent fractions.

This engaging, high-interest Pirate Math activity includes these printable activities:

  • Teacher Directions
  • Pirate Items Printables
  • Collection Sheet
  • Task 1: Color the Map
  • Task 2: Color the Loot
  • Task 3: Tricky Treasure Path
  • Task 4: Pirate Match Up
  • Task 5: X Marks the Spot
  • Pirate's Treasure Reward Envelope (for gold-wrapped candy as prizes)
  • Treasure Finder Master Pirate Award Certificates
  • Answer Keys

Students can work in teams or individually to complete all 5 tasks. As they complete each of the 5 tasks, they will bring you their answers and you will quickly check them. If they are correct, you will hand them the corresponding pirate item (printed on the provided page) and then next task. They continue this process until all 5 tasks are completed. When they finish, they are "Treasure Finder Masters" and you can give them a prize or an award.

Use the provided Pirate's Treasure Prize Envelope printables with pre-wrapped candy (Rolos, Hershey's Nuggets, or foil-wrapped chocolate coins) to make fun prizes for students!

There are no locks, no hiding of objects, or any extra prep work. The beauty of this escape activity is that it is very low prep. Just make your copies, organize your teams, make the prize envelopes (if you want to give prizes), and you're set!

Of course, some fun music and pirate decorations also help set the stage if you want.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
