The Titanic Project

This week we read a great story about the sinking of the Titanic. The kids are captivated. They adore disasters of any kind. Today in the computer lab they researched basic information about the Titanic and worked on their projects to present next week. They can make a poster, power point, tri-fold brochure, or write a short report.

I plan to use the computer lab more often. Would you believe I just learned we had a computer lab just before Christmas? I had no idea! I saw kids more engaged today than they have been sitting in my classroom. Gosh, I wish I had a computer or two for them to use in my classroom. What I would do for a  cart of laptops!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to their presentations next week.
