Titanic Activity Pack

Titanic Activity Pack

Titanic Activity Pack Includes: 1. Titanic History and Quiz Learning Objectives: The student will be able to explain about the RMS Titanic and why it’s sinking was an important historical event. 37 questions within 65 slides: excellent pictures and sources to engage and motivate pupil’s study of the History of the RMS Titanic. Can easily be edited as required. Extra notes/info given in the PP notes section. Teacher Notes This is an excellent activity/game/plenary to further improve student’s work and knowledge. I split the class into two teams (in one class I have girls against boys but in another class I have just divided the room down the middle) and when we play the game each side decides on a volunteer to come to the front, facing the class so they can’t see the board (one team at a time). A word is shown on the IWB and each time the word is answered correctly I display another. This works really well but it is important to set some ground rules such as not using words that rhyme with the word on display. I’ve yet to come across a class who doesn’t like the concept. Works brilliantly in pairs also - 1 student turns their back to the IWB. Further Notes Student sits at front with back to board. Words are displayed behind him/her. Rest of class has to describe word to student - see how many he/she gets in 1 min. Can be reversed so that student can see the words and has to describe them to the class. 2. The Titanic – Only Known Black Passenger Joseph Philippe Lemercier Laroche (26 May 1886 – 15 April 1912) was a Paris-educated Haitian engineer. He was the only passenger of known African ancestry on the ill-fated voyage of the RMS Titanic. I have often been asked by my students if there were any black people aboard. Useful info attached. 3.

The Great Titanic Debate - Who really was to blame?

The Great Titanic Debate - Who really was to blame?

This brilliant activity involves a class taking the roles of the 10 people (or groups of people) who could in some part be blamed for the sinking of the Titanic and the subsequent loss of over 1500 lives. The materials included here give you all the facts and everything you'll need to conduct a killer debate. I did this with my Year 6 class, but it could be used with children from years 4 - 8. This is a tried and trusted resource which had over 7000 downloads as a free resource. It has been updated and is now even easier to use - all you'll need is a printer, a pair of scissors, 11 envelopes and a willing class!
