Remember the great discussion we had the other day about pirates. I said that if I asked you to write a quick write on pirates most of you would have written Jack Sparrow, the Black Pearl, fun, adventure… all those kinds of words.
Well we saw on Cnn Student News that that’s Disney’s idea of pirating, not the real worlds. Here is a story we will discuss in class about pirates and pirating. Some pirates attacked a ship and lots. You can find the full story at AOL.com. Get your mom or dad and check it out.
I have a great prize waiting for the first kids in my class who tells me the origins of the word “pirate” Off to onelook.com with ya and cut and paste the answer in the comment section.
