Engage your KS3 learners on the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic with these thought-provoking resources

Infamous for hitting an iceberg and sinking on the morning of 15 April 1912, the Titanic was a tragic disaster in which 1,503 people lost their lives. For students, it provides the opportunity to talk about industrial production, early twentieth century social class, aspirational travel (or migration) to America, as well as the tragedy that arose when safety was compromised.

Whichever way you choose to approach the anniversary, we’ve done the hard work for you by selecting a range of resources to help you teach learners about this "unsinkable" vessel.
