Pirate treasure hunt

Really simple app for ks1 pupils. Nice straight forward interface with spoken instruction and guides.

"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. Make sure you collect the correct item before tackling the next obstacle. For example, you'll need to find a lantern before you can explore the dark cave. Use different strategies to solve the clues, and you'll find the booty. This learning object is one in a series of three objects."

The learning object:
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.
