Day 50: The "Ransom Caesar" Game

As if History is not enough fun as it is, they got to play a game in class today. We learned about Julius Caesar and how he got captured by pirates, just to come back and kill them all. The Story of the World workbook provided us with our usual map work, questions, and color pages, but also with a game called "Ransom Caesar". Basically, it is Battleship but with the numbers One through Four and the letters that spell p-i-r-a-t-e. The kids each got one game sheet, then they had to 'hide' Caesar somewhere on the board, and then find it by giving coordinates to each other. They had fun playing and this story will live in their heads for a while. LOVE this curriculum.
