Play The Name Game
The pirate in A Pirate's Quest does not have a name. The authors made this choice when they were writing the story. Ask your students why they think the authors would do this. Then ask your students to come up with their own name for the pirate. Click here to submit a name for the pirate. Let students enter their own ideas, or share one pirate name from your class!
