A Game of Words :
Pirates live a varied and interesting life. This year we saw Pirates portrayed in real life in a movie and in an animated movie.

List:

1)      the movie: ____________________

 

2)      the animated movie:_____________

 

In order to create new characters, places and objects, the authors must also create new words. You, too, can be creative by playing with words in a different way. Look at the words that follow. Choose two and combine them to make a new compound word. Then tell how a pirate would use this new thing. Create an illustrated dictionary of at least ten words.

Eye patch

foot 

break

wind 

cast

broad 

Treasure  

sword

man

ghosts

 sun

Example: Combine foot and pick to make the new word footpick. When a pirate wants to dig up his gold he uses his compass to find his foot and start digging.
