Extra! Extra! Titanic Sinks

Students investigate the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 before writing a newspaper page that includes facts about the event. They role play as reporters, editors, and survivors of the disaster while writing and designing a front page that announces the event to the world. During these lessons, the students determine the cause and effect of the events that lead to the sinking of the ship.

Lesson Planet has helped me come up with more creative plans. It has provided me ideas to expand on to take my 7th grade math students deeper into the concepts.
