Titanic

I have a little guy who is more than a little obsessed with the Titanic. I have to answer questions all day long about the Titanic. How did it sink? Why did it sink? Why would you go on a boat that is going to sink? How come they didn't see the iceberg? What is this? What happened to all the people who were on the boat? Did they swim home?
 
Wash. Rinse. Repeat. All in the matter of an hour.
 
The awesome teacher in me tried to do a big lesson about the Titanic. I thought I answered all the questions he had. And, really, I did. Until he asked them over and over again. For 5 days straight.
 
I asked him why he keeps asking me when he knows the answer.
 
He said, "I just like hearing you talk about the Titanic. It's like you were there."
 
He's still asking. My awesome social worker is doing a social skills lesson right now and he's still talking about the Titanic. All of his examples include the Titanic.

My second grade daughter is obsessed with the Titanic right now. I will admit to a bit of fascination myself so I probably encouraged this when it began.

The Free Technology for Teachers blog just happened to have some resources about the Titanic yesterday. I haven't shown my daughter yet, but I will be doing so soon.
