The Titanic

A has been reading about the Titanic and has found it fascinating. She just finished "The Titanic, Lost....and Found." After telling me all about it, and letting me quiz her for comprehension (which I have to say I am impressed, since this book is on a 3rd grade level and she definitely comprehended it.), she drew her version of the Titanic striking the iceberg and sinking, complete with fireworks going off to signal for help. (And no, she did not have the book near her while drawing this. :)

We are going to start the Magic Tree house book about the Titanic this week, and I am going to see if I can get her on a boat to see some lifeboats. I think I need to place a call to our coast guard friends here. :)
