FREE Pirate’s Gold Coordinate Graphing With Ordered Pairs

Students can practice plotting ordered pairs with this engaging Pirate themed math activity, designed specifically to build a student’s understanding of coordinate grids. This cute game is a fun way for students to practice plotting ordered pairs on a graph, while trying to steal all the Pirate’s gold!

Super easy, set up! Print, laminate, cut the cards and you are ready to play!

Students love playing this fun and interactive math game. It teaches students to be strategic in their choices. Students quickly learn which ordered pairs are the most lucrative.

Game includes 2 game boards (*Please follow directions for printing), 54 Task Cards with ordered pair coordinates, markers to cover plot points, a recording sheet for scores, and directions for the students as well as a teacher’s guide.

Large set of task cards for students to practice identifying and plotting coordinate points on a graph (task cards have first quadrant coordinates only)

Ideal for small groups! This game can be played as a guided math center, collaborative station, a task for early finishers or a homeschool math game.

Directions: Shuffle and place cards, face down, in the middle of the table. You will need a draw pile and a discard pile.

Player 1 chooses a card and plots that point by placing their marker on the grid. They record any amount of GOLD on their score card, if their point corresponds with a gold coin coordinate. If a student lands on a PARROT they can add 10 to the last number recorded.

Watch out though!! Those Monkey Pirates don’t want you to get their gold, so they will try to TRICK YOU with ordered pairs that don’t exist!

Place used cards in the discard pile. They will not be played again!

Next - Player 2 draws a card and plots their point. They collect any gold on their recording sheet.

Play continues with players trading roles in each round, until all of the gold has been collected, or no other moves are available.

Aligns With Math Standards for 5th Grade:

MGSE5.G.1 Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate

Can be used to support the following curriculum:

5th Grade enVision math series, Topic 16 (Geometry and the Coordinate Plane) or

5th Grade Georgia GSE Unit 7

Why It's Awesome!?

Math games give students the opportunity to explore numeracy in a way that increases retention. The initial understanding of the first quadrant provides the foundation for work in the other three quadrants, which includes negative numbers introduced in Grade Six.
