Reading Cozy Classics Moby **** and The Mellops Go Diving for Treasure -
For the presentation it helps to have props- I happened to have a model ship and a birding scope to show the kids.
Anything nautical helps I wore a sailor shirt.
Craft activity includes making a treasure chest and putting in our treasure map found at:
See craft treasurechest(pdf):
Requires brown construction paper, markers, glue stick and tabs made from yellow scrap paper. The taps can be
made to slip into the two pieces next to the lock--craft provided by Cathy Hankins email@example.com
See treasurechest2 (pdf) for the finished product - for this class the take-away lesson was actually folding the maps
to put into their treasure chest. It was too difficult to keep their attention on additional straps, so we opted for the
simpler treasure chest. The kids also were given stickers to put into their treasure chest. The daycare providers
are able to improvise with this theme - kids love pirates and they sang "A Sailor went to Sea, Sea, Sea."
