Each card has a “pirate” word or phrase at the top of the card. Below it, students will find three choices as to the meaning of the word(s). Students will use a print or online dictionary to discover or confirm the meaning of each and record their answer on the sheet provided.
If working in partners, have one student record their predictions of the meaning and the other record their actual meanings.
A key has been provided for you or so that students can be directed to self-check upon completion.
