You and I now work for the White Star Line, builders and operators of the newest ocean vessel, the colossal and extravagant Titanic! To prepare for the Titanic's maiden voyage to America, you have been tasked with studying and marketing her. Your supervisor (teacher) will guide you through, but it important for you to follow deadlines to keep up with the departure schedule of our grand new ship.
1. Make lists of rhyming words for ship parts.
2. Investigate primary sources concerning the Titanic (non-fiction). Take explicit notes that will be useful for upcoming activities.
3. Make lists of figurative/descriptive language to describe the Titanic.
4. Look up the word titanic. Make a list of synonyms for the word.
5. Create advertising posters for the new ship.
6. Plot the Titanic’s planned route on maps.
7. Use geometric shapes to make the Titanic.
8. Record information in your logbook about their experiences.
There is not enough room in our school to accurately measure the dimensions of the Titanic. Have you found the dimensions in your earlier research? Where did you find the information? What are the best tools to use for this activity?
The teacher may help you with a couple of experiments with steam, as well.
