Every pirate needs their very own treasure map.  Today we would like you to draw your own treasure map.  think about the different things you could put on it.  Is their mountains or caves? Is it a map of a desert island?  You might want to put some arrows on your map to make it easier to follow  Label the different things on your map.  Don’t forget X marks the spot where the treasure is buried.

Now have a think about what might be buried in your treasure chest.  Is it filled with golden coins? Is it full of diamonds and jewels? It might have a special toy or teddy inside it.  Draw your treasure chest and write a sentence about what is inside e.g. In my treasure box there is lots of gold coins.  You might what to collect some objects that are special to you and make your own treasure chest. 

Collect a set of objects from around your house to experiment with. Pick a number to aim for, let’s say 10. Make these into a numbered list to tick off if you wish.Find something to use as the sea – the bath is a good option or paddling pool if is sunny outside.  If you want to make a plank then feel free.   Predict whether you think the object with float or sink and them test them by making them walk the plank.  Record your finds in your home learning book.  Follow the link to find out more about floating and sinking https://www.sesamestreet.org/toolkits/stem/sink-or-float
