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.

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.
