My Titanic Project

Yesterday we had a home school family night. In my opinion, it was almost like a talent show, some of the families in the area (who, of course, home school) brought display boards or projects that they have done throughout the school year and some sang and others played the piano.

I really wanted to speak about the Titanic but was told I would have to have a time limit. If I started talking about it…I wouldn’t be able to stop, so I decided to sing and play my guitar and just set out a display. Here’s how it turned out:

I got all the pictures off the internet and made copies of a few things from my personal collection; as for the rest (i.e. the ticket book and passenger biographies), I used templates from the Hands of a Child lapbook CDs.

I tried to cram as much information I could on that board and I think that my work paid off. Last night I was told I should write a book about the Titanic. That was probably the best compliment I could have received.
