Next, the students team up to form pirate crews and set sail on an Internet Treasure Hunt. They are guided by clues, which are earned each time they find a hidden item.
In preparation for this activity, students learn how to:
- search the Internet
- copy a selection
- paste a selection
- toggle between windows
How to Play: Pirate teams all begin at Home Port, on the Treasure Map, which is provided in the TechnoPirate Resources. They receive the first of seven clues from the teacher.
Pirate crews are challenged to find an item on the Internet. They find, copy, and paste the item into the treasure chest document. The clue and treasure chest are shown to the teacher. If the item is correct, the crew is given the next clue.
How to Win: The first crew to reach Treasure Island is the winner. A number of different scenarios for winners and prizes are suggested in the Teacher Guide.
