Pirates Unit Study - Poppins Book Nook

This months theme for the Poppins Book Nook is Pirates.  Ahoy my mates let's go on a pirate adventure.

We have been anticipating this months study for a while now and we are looking forward to exploring what all the other Poppins Book Nook families have done to make studying pirates an adventure.

Pirates of old have always piqued my curiosity and we have learned a lot about these people over the course of the last few months.  I found it interesting that Kings and Queens of days gone by employed pirates to patrol their coast lines as they could not afford a full navy they relied on these free seaman to protect their borders.

Pirates too are the inspiration behind many a tall tale as well as the villains in many a classical tale.

We found these three at the library

Since little boys love pirates I found these two at a bargain price

Party Ideas
In April we went to a Pirate Themed birthday party. It was so much fun to see all the creative things you can do at a Pirate Party! At the party Sir N dug for treasure, walked the plank, followed a treasure map, tossed the hoop and many more fun things.  I was inspired after this wonderful birthday to see what ideas Kara's Party Ideas has


Puzzle Pirates
If you have children that love puzzles be sure to check out Puzzle Pirates.  There are over 20 puzzles for them to play and work on their logic skills. My first two loved being pirates and I enjoyed sailing!
