By Education Services Australia Ltd.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Join forces with Pirate Jack. He needs your help to solve eight problems and find the hidden treasure. Use the map to work your way through the obstacles one by one and in the right order. Apply your maths and literacy skills to make sure you collect the correct item before tackling the next obstacle. For example, you’ll need to order a set of words from coldest to hottest to find a lantern before you can explore a dark cave. Use different strategies to solve the clues, and you’ll find the booty.

Key learning objectives:

- Students analyse problems by using a range of strategies, including interpreting clues, intuition, and trial and error.
- Students solve problems by using literacy and numeracy skills.

Educational value:

- Provides opportunities for students to solve problems using their literacy and numeracy skills within the context of a pirate treasure map.
- Encourages the use of trial and error to discover the correct sequence of problem solving.
- Includes a variety of problem types which focus on, for example, spelling, shapes, visual cues, word knowledge, addition of numbers and time.

Pirate treasure

A great game! Having a teaching background this is a terrific app. However it works sometimes and other times it asks for 4 words and after we do them it keeps asking for more. It is hard to make 4 more words whilst the coconuts are rising to the top of the screen with the instructions covering the letters. Then it seems to just get stuck on some pages and we can't get past that stage even if we have it correct. Perhaps this is a bug that needs to be looked at?
Overall would love more pirate apps! Keep up the great ideas.

Educational Title with a spelling mistakes!

On the good side: Fun and entertaining for 5-6 yr old

On the not do good side: very short (It is free so I can't complain too much)

On the wishful side: Would have been great for the coconut word game to have different letter combinations with different words. I imagine this would have been minimal programming effort, but would add a huge amount to the replayability.

On the... well... educationally misleading side:
For the coconut word game you make words from the letters: t,f,a,d,c,s,h
There are some words that my 8 yrold tied for which he was told: "too bad, try again" One of which was "shaft". Please. If you are making an educational product, at least get the education right!

Great app, a bit short

A great app for kids, my 5yo loves it, but it is over too quickly (maybe 10-15 mins).
Very well made app though, would give it 4 stars but since it's free it deserves 5!
