Teaching Resources

Over the next several months, we’ll be adding a number of teaching resources related to the scenes and events in the book.

We will cover a variety of topic areas, such as: recipes, vocabulary, navigation, math, literature, ships, places, medicine, people, events, technology, and more.


Teacher’s Guide – a guide to help inspire classroom and homeschool discussion and research activities related to the historical setting of the book.

Book Research – posts about some of the research that went into writing particular parts of the book. Includes the blog series “Behind the Line”.

Glossary – a listing of the naval and pirate-y terms and definitions as found in the book.

Story Timeline – the timeline of major story events paired with those from the real world that influenced Emma’s travels on the New Adventure.

Pirate Games – as part of our interest in pirates and the world they lived in, we have also created some education games and activities.
