Adventure on the High Seas, Part 3 ~ Pirate Notebook Pages

Yo, Ho!
Yo, Ho!
A Pirate's life for me.......No, Thanks!



We are starting the second half of Adventure on the High Seas , studying the haunts and habits of pirates.

If you haven't seen my earlier posts in this series, you can find them HERE & HERE.


The first post above explains our general outline of study.  We are studying Pirates by the following regions:

  • Spanish Main
  • Mediterranean
  • Indian Ocean
  • Eastern Seas


Below are our notebook pages for Pirates.  We will use one set of sheets (p.1-4) for each region we study.







This sheet is for mapping the region we are studying.





Page 2 includes a place for sketching one of the many weapons we learn about, a spot for sketching pirate ships, and a section for recording a little about pirate life.










Page 3 is a biography sheet for any infamous pirate the student wants to study a bit more.  There's room for a portrait (either print-out or sketch), sketching that pirate's signature Jolly Roger, and a few lines to record some of the pirate's most well-known exploits.







Like in the Explorer studies, the final page is an exercise in copy work.  There are 4 different versions of Pirate Page 4, each with a different selection of seaworthy poetry to copy.  While you would use pages 1-3 exactly the same for all 4 regions, you would print out a different page 4 for each region in order to have a new poem to copy in each study.





You can find the PDF version of all of these pirate notebook pages for free HERE at my account at 4shared.com.

Since I am making these sheets anyway for my own children, it is my great pleasure to share them with other homeschool families.  Feel free to make copies for personal or co-op use.  I just ask that you please not change them, charge for them, or call them your own creation.  Thanks!

Also, if you do use our notebook pages, won't you please drop us a line and let us know how you like them and how you used them?  We would love to hear from you!  addingtothebeauty (at) gmail (dot) com

  1. Hi... I am a teacher in NY, USA, and stumbled upon your site. I am using a "pirate theme" this year, and just wanted to share that you have put together some great curriculum, and sound like an awesome mom and teacher! Your kids are lucky to have you. Have a great day!
