How to be a pirate


  1.  Why was the Caribbean a popular place for pirates?  (page 10).
  2. What was kept in barrels on the ship? (page 12)
  3. Why was meat stored in barrels and covered with salt? (page 12)
  4.   What did pirates do on their day off? (page 13)
  5.  What happened to pirates if they caused trouble? (page 13)

Pretend that you are a pirate that has caused trouble on a ship and you are about to be punished.  You need help to escape from the ship before you get punished.  You decide to write a note to put in a bottle to throw overboard.  What will you write?  You could explain what you did wrong, what your punishment will be and why you need help.  Can you persuade someone to come and save you? 

If you can print at home there is a document below that you could use or you can draw your own bottle.
