Titanic fake news lesson plan : digital literacy

Engage your students with this fake news lesson plan based around the Titanic. This is a jam-packed lesson to teach digital literacy whilst researching about the Titanic. The pack includes a news report, differentiated research sheets and supporting power point and LOTS more! It is suitable for US grades 3-5 or UK key stage 2

The hands on collaborative activities are sure to pique your **student’s **curiosity, with pass the parcel, a fake news report and graffiti board activities.

The lesson is comprehensive and includes a detailed lesson plan, supporting Power Point slide show, student** clickable research worksheets and three differentiated worksheets with answer keys. Students can check they have met the success criteria by using the ‘Do my Account’ checklist.

I have designed this pack to be creative and engaging whilst being aligned to US and UK standards and I have included both packs in this packet. Both US and UK packs are formatted to US letter and A4 respectively with English spellings accordingly.This fake news resource is suitable for US grades 3-5 or UK key stage 2.

The lesson can be taught as a full lesson, or split up using the starter activity and the news report activity in the power point as one lesson. The research activity can then be used for a follow up lesson.
