This 11 slide Powerpoint is an excellent way to review vocabulary words from the 4th grade HM story "Finding the Titanic" by Robert Ballard. In this activity, students are placed in a situation and asked which vocabulary word would best fit that situation. This activity allows students to think about each word in a new context and be actively engaged. Even the wrong answers explain the word chosen so students can learn from their mistakes. Words used as correct answers include survivor, voyage, and shipwreck. Other words used as incorrect choices, yet explained include plague, wreckage, and unsinkable.
