The Unsinkable Wreck of the RMS Titanic Lesson Plans

The Unsinkable Wreck of the R.M.S. Titanic by Robert D. Ballard

Lesson Plans by Elizabeth Pedro

In 1912, the Titanic was the largest, most luxurious ship the world had ever seen. Tragedy struck: the Titanic hit an iceberg and rapidly sank, killing over 1,500 people. From inside a cramped submarine named Alvin, the author, Dr. Robert Ballard, describes the excitement of exploring the sunken Titanic. The submarine crew were the first to see the Titanic’s deck in over seventy years.
