We will be doing all types of research in coordination with what is happening in the classroom! In the up coming months we will definitely be teaming up to do some research on one of my favorite subjects, the Titanic!

Publication Date: 2006-07-27
The Titanic was the largest, most luxurious passenger ship in the world. In 1912 it hit an iceberg while traveling from England to the United States. An enormous gash was made in the side and ice-cold water began rushing in. Within hours, this floating palace had plunged to the bottom of the ocean. Over 1500 people died and, along with them, the idea that any ship is unsinkable. Timelines, a glossary, ideas for research, and suggestions for future reading are included in this gripping read about one of the most famous shipwrecks in history. This book explains how and why the Titanic sank.
