Ahoy Mates! Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 9.47.14 AMThanks for joining the Purple Pirate on this grand adventure aboard the SS HULLabaloo. "Build Your Own Pirate Ship" is the perfect Buddy Program activity. "Build Your Own Pirate Ship kits" are a process based creative activity that was created for the K-2 age group. Students colour, cut and assemble their very own pirate ship. The children's experience was my guide when I took an existing design and updated to create this simple, fun and popular project that becomes a 3 dimensional object at the end. This project should take about an hour. Older students do the cutting. Younger students do the colouring and as a team they assemble the ship. The foresail is empty for the students own design. Once they are finished please send a pictures to dustin@purplepirate.com or upload it to the Purple Pirate Facebook Page. https://www.facebook.com/thepurplepirate . P. Pirate would love to praise your fine work! What you will need:
