Engage your students with this Fake News Titanic lesson! This is a jam-packed lesson to teach digital literacy whilst researching about the Titanic. The pack includes a news report, differentiated research sheets and supporting power point and LOTS more!
Students will love researching for informational text online whilst deciding on whether the source is fake or true. Cover the key elements surrounding reliable online sources and how that can be applied to a research project. Key literacy areas are covered in the context of social studies.
The hands on collaborative activities are sure to pique your student’s curiosity, with pass the parcel, a fake news report and graffiti board activities.
The lesson is comprehensive and includes a detailed lesson plan, supporting Power Point slide show, student clickable research worksheets and three differentiated worksheets with answer keys. Students can check they have met the success criteria by using the ‘Do my Account’ checklist which includes self or peer assessment.
I have designed this pack to be creative and engaging whilst being aligned to US and UK standards and have included both packs in this packet. Both US and UK packs are formatted to US letter and A4 respectively with English spellings accordingly.
This fact gathering activity builds a databank of information regarding the events surrounding the Titanic, which can be used in another lesson.
The lesson can be taught as a full lesson, or split up using the starter activity and the news report activity in the power point as one lesson. The research activity can then be used for a follow up lesson.
