A source-based enquiry lesson based around Titanic. Useful for KS2 and KS3 as an introduction to using sources or for a whole history topic. Contains: a highly visual PowerPoint with notes (underneath the slides), a range of primary and secondary sources with provenances, differentiated activity booklets for higher ability (HA), middle (MA) and lower (LA). I am also using clips from the movie to really hook the kids in! Hope it's not too late for the 100 year anniversary and that it&'s some use to you! Cheers, Luke

    This served as an excellent concluding less to our Titanic IDL unit. Children were able to use previous knowledge, in addition to the sources, to make informed decisions and justify these views. Very good for highlighting the difference between and secondary sources and discussing their reliability.
