Based on the book Hope and Survival, A Story of the Halifax Explosion looks at the events that lead tot the Halifax Explosion. It also looks at how we know more about the Titanic than the Halifax Explosion. I am currently creating it while teaching a combination class, so it's a work in progress which is why it is free this year. Today we read Love From Katie and wrote Penpal letters and sent them Priority in the mail to a school in Boston for the students to open on December 6 and thank them for the help their ancestors gave us. This is my last piece for this unit.
