Immigration Unit Study .. Titanic
To get a feel for what trans-Atlantic travel was like, we watched Titanic. We did all sob our eyes out but it really did provide a wonderful illustration into what steamship travel was like in the early 1900s and what the class differences were like.
After watching the movies the kids explored the passengers and ship on Encyclopedia Titanica. And finally we had the April 14, 1912 Third Class menu for lunch and selections from the First Class menu for dinner.
