pirate math and pirate-themed link-up

Pin It
in preparation for Bear's pirate birthday party, i bought a huge bag of plastic gold coins. i thought they would not only work for the table decoration, but also to use during learning activities.  and wouldn't you know, the opportunity arose.

we hadn't done anything with measuring for quite some time, so i thought we'd explore measuring with units (the coins being the units).  we grabbed a few things and set off to measuring.  because some of the items were slightly shorter/longer than the coins, i got to introduce Bear to the word "approximately."  he loved that. 

we were also able to turn it into a game where he estimated how many coins long other items would be.

Mrs. Kuhn over at From Tantrums to Treasure Hunts and i are co-hosting a fun pirate link-up that lasts until mid-november. 
got a pirate post? link it up here!  
or go do a new one and come back and link up! 

link as many as you'd like
post a link back to me somewhere
stick around and look at a few other links

we'd love to build a great treasure of pirate related ideas, activities, and crafts.
