Pirates Lost Treasure – Angles Activity

This video from Teachers TV is ideal for use in Key Stage Two mathematics lessons.

Pirate Kate has lost her map and needs to find her hidden treasure. She reads out a series of directions, each of which involves using her compass to face north, turning a set number of degrees and walking forward a number of metres in the new direction. Students are then challenged to draw the treasure map. To find the buried treasure, students need to use their knowledge of geometry, degrees and angles.
