100th Anniversary of the Sinking of the Titanic
April 14, 2012 was the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of The Titanic. Today was our Co-op day, and Kristi chose to cover The Titanic. I like to carry the theme from the class out during the remainder of the school week. If you have an Edhelper or Enchanted Learning subscription, they have some lovely printables for the Titanic. I also found some on About.com, that you can print for free. The videos below will help you to put together a nice little unit study. There is also an online Titanic Museum, you can visit to help with your unit study. DJ will have a reading comprehension, and then a writing assignment due on Friday. The writing assignment, in case anyone wants to use it, is why was the sinking of the Titanic such a memorable event? The second video is especially lovely, showing in color what the Titanic looks like under the big ocean.
