My daughter has developed a huge interest in the Titanic as of late. I am loving her love of History and the fact that this has captured her interest. I wanted to take some time and put together some Titanic study resources for her to use as she is so interested in learning more. I will be including printables, unit studies, resources, and videos we have found as well as a few crafts and a stem challenge. I hope that this will help you if you are working on a unit on the Titanic in your homeschool or classroom. (I will be adding more to this resource list as we continue the study.)
20 Titanic Study Resources
The I Survived book was a fantastic one for my oldest to read thru and glean some fantastic facts. She loved that it was a historical fiction book from the perspective of a surivivor.
This is a family favorite. I highly recommend this book if you have younger kids learning about The Titanic.
I added this here because I know there is a very famous Titanic movie out. There are some historical inaccuracies and some adult scenes in the movie. This would be a good film to watch with your kids if you are able to skip certain content or are comfortable with it. I recommend saving it for the end of your study so you can challenge them to spot the inaccuracies.

Titanic Unit Study from Small World at Home

This CGI of how the Titanic sank is fantastic! It helped my son to understand why the videos of them looking at the ship on the ocean’s floor looked the way they did.
If you are looking for a good reason why the Titanic should be undisturbed this video is a must watch. He is very descriptive with certain areas. I recommend listening to this one before showing it to the kids if your kids are more sensitive.
These two videos are a great combination of digs and voice over interviews by survivors. There are 5 parts in this video set but I only watched the first 2.
