I had so much fun creating this resource. I have always found the Titanic interesting, even as a student. While being creative, I learned so much more about the night of the sinking and many of the passengers onboard.
This is a great resource for many reasons. First, this topic will keep students engaged. Second, you can tie in social-emotional learning and ask your students to imagine the emotions and experiences of the passengers on board. For example, how do you think it felt to be a first-class or 3rd-class passenger? Also, how do you think the passengers felt watching the ship go down into the freezing Atlantic Ocean? Do you think the people who were able to get on a lifeboat felt guilt or do you think they felt relief?
A Titanic virtual field trip is a great resource for elementary and upper elementary students. This is also ideal for middle school students. Students will enjoy the in-depth view and experience from each video.
Here’s what included:
This resource is offered in PowerPoint format as well as Google Slides. I wanted to provide two versions so every teacher could implement this resource.

Each slide has clipart that fits the theme perfectly and is age-appropriate.
