The first activity includes an internet based primary document on the Titanic. The website used is from a great primary source site, the Eye Witness to History site. http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/index.html
The following website is used.
The Sinking of the Titanic 1912
Students read the document and answer the questions. I usually print out the reading for the students, but you can have students answer the questions using the website.
The second activity includes a writing activity where students take the role of a newspaper reporter aboard the Titanic. Students write about life aboard the Titanic for the different classes of people before the ship sank.
These activities are great for reinforcing information or complimenting topics being taught in the classroom. The assignment can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify them as needed for your classes.
