Do your kids love learning about the Titanic? Mine do! I created this lesson to bring in something they love to learn about with something new. This lesson is designed to compare and contrast the Lusitania and the Titanic. Both ships were passengers ships that sank tragically. This lesson has a text structure of compare and contrast and includes information about the Lusitania, which is a social studies standard. The lesson ends with a fun game of Battleship reiterating that the Lusitania sank by sailing into a war zone. I hope your students enjoy it as much as mine did!
