This was originally an ELA assignment, but it could also be used for social studies. Students are assigned a passenger from the Titanic, and must complete a profile of information about that passenger. Then, the student assumes the role of that passenger and writes a postcard home to a friend or family member about life on the Titanic.
This package includes:
-A list of 30 Titanic passengers of various ages. About half of the passengers on the list survived. They are also split about half male and half female. When I taught this lesson, I gave each student a slip with a random passenger on it.
-A 12 question passenger profile sheet for students to complete about their passengers using the Internet.
-A list of instructions for a digital version of a postcard home from a Titanic passenger
-A list of instructions for a hard copy version of a postcard home from a Titanic passenger
