This is an informational text writing unit about the Titanic disaster. The unit focuses on key facts about the the ship, the notorious iceberg collision and the evacuation attempt. The unit has been split into three separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.
The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write four paragraphs. Then, in the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.
NO PREP is needed!
If you would like to add another lesson, download my Titanic Reading Comprehension Activity for just $1.50. This would give the students more background knowledge before they start writing the informational text.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
We also specialise in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet. And a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
