We’re taking advantage of the flexibility of homeschooling to learn about the Titanic this week as the 100th anniversary of its sinking is remembered on Saturday. There are so many resources available but I have learned that less is more. We’re spending the week using a trio of library books and a documentary:Tonight on the Titanic – This Magic Tree House book is a fun way to put your family into the infamous night. It’s not a great literary work by any means, but child-friendly.Eyewitness Titanic – This nonfiction book provided us with an inside look at the ship, the people, news coverage, survivors, finding the wreckage, a timeline, and more. As we read the story and my children ask questions or wonder what something looked like this is the book we check for answers.Wonders of the World: Icebergs – The photography in this small volume is priceless. Seeing as my children have never seen an iceberg in real life, this gives us a peek. Their favorite picture is on page 20:
