All Aboard the Unsinkable Titanic

In April 1912, the RMS Titanic set off on her maiden voyage from England to New York City. The third day at sea, she struck an iceberg and sank in the Atlantic Ocean. In early April my students and I did an in-depth unit on the Titanic - and it was a hit! My students LOVED learning about all aspects of the incident - building and furnishing the ship, the passengers, what life was like on board the ship, the crash, and the subsequent sinking.

I am linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their weekly
"Must-Read Mentor Texts" linky party:
The theme this week is Social Studies - one of my absolute favorite subjects to teach!

Here's one of the best books I used in my Titanic unit:

I LOVE the Eyewitness Books - they are chocked-full of valuable and age-appropriate information on a myriad of subjects. Topics covered in this book include:
*The building of the Titanic
*Captain and Crew
*First, Second, and Third Class Travel
*A deadly collision
*Sinking

Here are some sample pages:
You can see how well-laid out the pages are.
They are chocked-full of interesting information, diagrams, and pictures.
I read different sections to my students each day -
and they hung on my every word and clamored to see the pages.
