Gingerbread Pirates gives students the opportunity to collaboratively use the online catalog system in the library to find the call number of easy and fiction books and then actually physically locate the book on the shelf in the library. The lesson begins with a read aloud of the book The Gingerbread Pirates
by Kristin Kladstrup. A copy of the book is not included in this unit; you will need to obtain a copy of the book in order to use this unit or find a suitable replacement. In the story, the gingerbread pirates are hiding from Santa. After reading the story, you will tell the students that some pirates are still hiding in the library, and you need their help in locating them. Let the fun begin!
The following items are included in this packet:
• Game Directions
• Gingerbread Pirates for hiding in the books
• Cookie Jars with book titles
• Blank Cookie Jar Templates for adding your own titles
