Print as many sets of these mats as you need. Laminate the mats or use dry erase pocket inserts for easy prep! Laminate the shape cards too, and have them ready in a plastic sleeve.
Shape Sort – Pirate Treasure BoxUse these mats to help kids develop number sense and strengthen their knowledge of shapes. They can be used in a number of ways. Have the kids sort the shape cards into the correct boxes. Another great way to use these mats is to print them out in black and white and have the kids cut and paste the shapes into the corresponding treasure boxes. You can do this by printing two pages on one landscape page.
This pirate themed activity is perfect for kids who are interested in pirates and love the theme! You can definitely differentiate this activity by using the shape boxes that the kids are familiar with if you have kids who are not familiar with all the shapes.
This game can also be played as a group. It will be even more enjoyable to have a competitive game played between groups. Give each group the same mat and have the kids sort their shape cards all at the same time. The group who finishes first with the most number of sorted shapes wins the prize!
