Treasure maps from an old atlas

Students showed their learning about pirates by creating treasure maps using pages from a discarded atlas. We examined old maps, tore the edges, decorated the pages and then aged them with tea soaked paper towels. Next time I would use more teabags and let the tea soak overnight. Some students crumpled the pages as they dried. We focused on celebrating our accomplishments and using positive language to congratulate peers.
