Oak Island

Posted on

The story of Oak Island and the money pit seems to have sparked our imagination. Is there really a treasure buried there? Who’s treasure is it? The Incas? Captain Kidd? What could be down there?

In this post I want your opinion and ideas about Oak Island. Tell me what you think!

    I think that it could be possible that someone already found the treasure but didn’t tell anyone because they didn’t want anyone to know.

      Oh I totally forgot what the question was. Haha! But to answer it, I think it was a pirates treasure.

    I think the treasure is some kind of prehistoric gemstone.

    I’ve heard of the story of Oak Island treasure. Lots of people died looking for it. I think there’s definitly something hidden down there. What is it and Who does it belong to? I don’t really know, probably a famous pirate.

    Mr. Purdon I think it’s a pirate treasure because of the amount of people who want to have a lot of money like all sorts of people there. My opinion is about Oak island is it sounds like you would have a feelling like you would want to have a rich and alot of money. Good bye for now

    I Think the Oak Island Treasure is not a pirate treasure but a crate and/or box containing Skakespear’s original writings. I don’t have any explanations on why, other than I really like Shakespear.

    I think the Oak Island Treasure is a hoax because no one has found it yet, and who would burry an item that valuable that deep?

      Derrick said:
      September 17, 2010 at 11:16 am

      Maybe they were tagged with a deadly disease, and they didn’t want anyone to get there treasure!

    I think the mystery of oak island is just a hoax. I think this because there is no proof that there is any treasure. Plus if it wasn’t a hoax then whose treasure was it?

    To: Mr. Purdon I think oak island is made up because nobody has found it for like so long and people have been wasting there money.

    Gemma said:
    September 17, 2010 at 11:11 am

    I think the the treasure is a prehistoric gemstone because the treasure was most likely burried in about 20,000 B.C.

    Tristian said:

    I think it a pirates tresure because mabye it has a curse so that no one can find it

    Kadi-Rose said:
    September 17, 2010 at 11:15 am

    I think the treasure is similar to what Gemma said, I do think that the treasure it a gemstone because they were probably more comman back then, then they are now.

    I think that the story of Oak Island is a hoax. I think this because I remembered when you told us about the three boys who ventured into the money pit, but they only got so deep until the pit filled up with water. There were a few other people who tried, but also failed and didn’t get far. There was a picture in the book that showed the money pit, and the things buried in it. If everyone who tried to find the treasure only got so far, how did they know what was farther down? And that, Mr. Purdon, is why I think that the Oak Island story is a hoax.

    Our class is reading a book called The Hand of Robin Squires and it is a historical fiction about a greedy pirate who hides his treasure in a deep hole on Oak island. So far it is a very good book, if any of you come across it you should read it.
