Pirate Treasure theme, without the pirates.
This is a collection of printables to make games and activities to present or supplement a Treasure Hunting theme unit for young children. Perfect for a summer day camp theme for pre-K, Kindergarten, and early 1st grade children.
I'm not sure how I feel about presenting a Pirate Theme to young children. On one hand, the popular culture is full of pirate fantasy, kids love them, and it is important to give children the opportunity to be "scared" in a controlled situation. (Dinosaur themes are similar). However, I can't get past the fact that pirates are, and always have been, thieving immoral criminals. So, enjoy the Treasure Hunting, without the pirates.
