    Hi, I'm just going to throw out a few things that come to mind.. I have used the theme a few years back and my student work board said"Ahoy There Mates! Here's the Treasure!" Over the calendar..."Good Day, Mates!" Bulletin Board can say something like.."Discover Fractions" with a telescope (toy plastic) hanging over a math problem...could use this with "Discover The Main Idea..how about "Discover New Rivers " for a rivers of the world unit, etc. Behavior corner..A pirate flag with the slogan..."Trouble Ahead!" A good time to study the equator and the prime meridian, longitude, lattitude ,etc.You could explain that sailors celebrate when they cross the equator and ask them think up something for a goal to reach...or you give the goal....... As the students reach it, you could have a board that says " We Crossed the Equator!"and their name added. Hey, you know how it is! Once you get your line of thought started, you will think of more than you could use! If you have any ideas on my first big unit"Three Worlds Meet" ( LA curriculum requirement)... I'd appreciate it!(Or anyone else,especially from Louisiana that has taught the unit with a theme .)
