PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Read about the shipwreck of the Thomas W. Lawson, the only 7-masted schooner ever built, on Friday the 13th, 1907 and complete close reading and writing activities. Included are vocabulary words and links to additional resources such as video links. The reading selection is geared toward students in 5th -7th grade.

The article not only touches on the shipwreck, but the unique nature of this boat, technology in the 1800s, the wealthy man that the boat was named after, the need for energy and its transportation, and the stock market. Students might find many parallels between two different eras over 100 years apart.
