PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This map project is a fun, quirky way to allow students to demonstrate cartography and map reading skills. Let “Pirate Pete” guide your students through a culminating project about fundamental map skills: absolute location, the compass rose, the map key (or legend), and map symbols.

The twist, of course, is that students must create their own treasure map, as instructed by Pirate Pete.

See the full preview before you buy!

The assignment might also make a good stand-alone substitute lesson for a day when you cannot be at school.

What’s in the packet?

Included in the packet is Pirate Pete’s introductory letter and a set of treasure map-making instructions.

There are two versions to choose from: (1) the more “authentic”-looking handout marked with age and wear-and-tear and (2) the printer-friendly, ink-saving handout.

The packet also features a blank treasure map, a simple rubric for easy grading, and three maps linked to pirates: real and fictional.

Please let me know if I can be of any assistance with this project.

Thank you!
