Jean Lafitte & the Buccaneers (Pirates) of the Caribbean
My students have always taken to this game, wither it was in my SpEd classes or my Louisiana history classes. Maybe it was simply our own closeness to a local Jean Lafitte story
Students get to practice graphing and locating points within the coordinate plane by playing this fun game based off of the classic Battleship. This time students are playing with ships from the popular movie series, Pirates of the Caribbean or the Buccaneer.
Students will be either the Buccaneers (pirates) or the royal navy. They will hide their own ships on their coordinate plane, and then try to find their opponent’s ships before all of their ships are destroyed or sunk.
I’ve included a version that can quickly be printed off and handed out to students so that the entire class can play at once. In this case, place students into pairs and hand one student a Buccaneer (pirate) sheet, and the other a Royal Navy sheet. This can be collected for assessment.
My students loved this wen we were studying Jean Lafitte or anytime we had some SPARE time during the year.
I’ve included a version that can be printed off, and assembled with manila file folders to create a more permanent addition to your classroom (and requires less paper). Directions and pictures are included!
