Leading up to Titanic!

The 100th year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is coming up. Kids are always interested in this topic (and I have to admit, so am I!) There are some fun things going on right now that can lead up to it. How can you participate? Here are some ideas.

-Follow Titanic on Twitter and see what people were doing at this time 100 years ago involving the Titanic. For example, here is a tweet from March 12th.

-Look at biographical sketches of people on the Titanic.

-Discuss who survived the most and least and why.

-Look at stats of the Titanic and use in math lessons or compare with other objects. (Width, length, top speeds, length of the gash, depth of the wreck, etc.)

-Look at the Online Titanic Museum and see colors, tiles, swatches, and more from the actual ship.

What other sources have you found? What lessons are you doing with your kids?


  1. There have been so many good books coming out about this. Thanks for the list of resources; I need to get on the ball and plan something!
