In this document I have created a lead in topic for a school based treasure hunt for Early Years/Grade 1, 2 and 3.
There is a boy pirate character named Axel who tells the children a little about himself and asks if they can help him find the lost treasure and golden key before the bad pirate does.
This is a great lead in to a Pirate topic or a treasure hunt. The children really love the characters and it is more meaning to them because they want to help the boy out by finding the treasure.
There are so many follow on Literacy and Numeracy topics that you could do on this PowerPoint.
