We had an amazing time at the Titanic Museum in Branson. We spent several hours there enjoying the interactive exhibits, beautiful recreations and learning more about the stories behind the people on board. It is an amazing place for both children and kids, and honestly one of our favorite attractions while in Branson, MO with the grandparents during spring break.
But what we didn’t know until we got home was that the Titanic Museum also offers a free education guide online! Using the Titanic Guide you can study the topics of language arts and social studies, science, geography, math, and religion. There is even a special section for homeschooling as well as resources for teachers and parents. Each one of them offers facts and figures as well as prompts to help you make learning these topics using the Titantic as a base. For specific learning activities
For example, learn about bouyancy, as you find out why boats float and then you can do a demonstration for the class or with your class, child or homeschooler using the easy to do instructions, which will show why the Titanic sank.
Or find easy to do prompts for math concepts. For example use the facts and figures about lifeboats to create mathmatical problems. Other facts and figures can be used to create a graph or pie chart.
In the language arts section, consider having your students read all about the Titanic and then create their own newspaper in the classroom.
And, these are just a few of the ideas available or prompted by my visit to the education guide online. Just imagine what I came up with after more time.
But it’s not just learning, it’s learning fun, and we are all about that here on AtoZ! There are school, homeschool and group discounts as well as scavenger hunts! You can easily request information on the scavenger hunt online as well as download the scavenger hunt form – so if you can’t make the trip your students can do the task virtually, finding out all the answers while testing their research, computer and thinking skills.
Did I mention all this is FREE?
