Time Travelers: Titanic

IntroductionI welcomed my kids and families to my program. Each person randomly picked
a Titanic passenger from a bucket when they entered the meeting room.
I then kicked off with a Powerpoint and discussed the basics of the Titanic.
I finally introduced our three projects.
Iceberg ScienceIceberg Deception and Iceberg art
I had prepared “icebergs” using muffin tins. I gave each kid a cold glass
of water. We observed how the ice looked very smooth on the surface of the water
but there was a large chunk of ice undetected under water.

The kids then received a new iceberg. They sprinkled some ice on top of it and then
using pipettes to dribbles colored water over their icebergs.

CraftMorse Code Bracelet
The kids created beaded bracelets based off morse code. Unfortunatley, the link I used for
inspiration is no longer available.
Boat ScienceTinfoil and Pool
I gave the kids each a tinfoil and they had to try and make a tinfoil boat that would
hold the most glass stones. I could a several boats that did not sink!
TreatsIce Cream and Oreos
For our treat, we served ice-cream and Oreos. Oreos were first released on March 6, 1912.
I thought it was very fitting, since the Titanic sank a month later.
Did you survive?The last part was where I revealed information about each person’s Titanic passenger.
They found out if they survived the sinking.

I unfortunately have no pictures from this event. I did not have my normal help, and I ended up running around most

of the program.
