Today is the 97th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. I was reminded of this by an article that the BBC ran today. This article profiles the last Titanic survivor who was rescued from the ship when she was nine weeks old. The BBC has a number of other resources related to the Titanic including a video journey of Titanic exploration.
National Geographic XPeditions has a Titanic lesson plan designed for middle school use. The lesson plan includes the use of 3D animations of the Titanic as well as a study of ocean currents.
