Reading and Writing

A pirate is a person who attacks and robs ships. Some pirate captains would start with a small ship and crew. Once they had captured a bigger ship, they would use that instead. John 'Jack' Rackham - He made the Jolly Roger flag. Bartholomew Roberts - He stole 400 ships! Pirates can still be found today, in Africa, but they don't dress the same as they did long ago.
