Blackbeard's Treasure A Mathematical Adventure for KS2 by Alan Parr


Blackbeard's Treasure A Mathematical Adventure for KS2 by Alan Parr

It's 1720 in the Caribbean, and a group of pirates are about to launch an expedition to find Blackbeard's Treasure. Players have to purchase a ship, hire a crew, kit them out, find the island and the hidden treasure - and finally share out the loot! There are eight tasks to be completed by children working in pairs. Each pack draws on the creative and interactive features of adventure games, and applies them to a series of exciting and imaginative learning exercises, based on a common theme or challenge. Children have to undertake a number of maths tasks to complete the game. The fun challenges are easy, straightforward and ideal for children at KS2 who find maths difficult.
