Exploring the Titanic

Found in: artistic design & composition; arts; science

My students read Exploring the Titanic by Robert Ballard as part of our oceanography unit. The students were asked to pretend they were hired to design a brochure advertising the ship's features prior to its voyage. This demonstrated what the students learned about the structure and the features of the Titanic. After reading several chapters, the students designed paper and pencil sketches of their brochures. They included many facts and bits of information about the Titanic. Once they finished their paper draft and proofread it, they created the brochure using Print Shop on the computer. Students added pictures to their brochures too. We then printed them on paper specifically designed for brochures and displayed them.
