FC: Titanic: Lifeboat Number 8 | By:Kayla Nash and Kiley O'Neill
1: How It All Started | The R.M.S. Titanic,was designed by William Pierre's Belfast Firm Harland and Wolff. It was thought the unsinkable ship for many reasons including that; it was the biggest and most luxurious of its time, and also that it had 4 water-tight compartments that could fill up with water without it sinking. It was set out on the Atlantic Ferry Route, which was where it started out in Southampton, England, and was suppose to come to port at New York. But, as we all know it was not meant to be. Lets go more into dept. We are going to go on about Lifeboat number 8 specifically. | Introduction
2: Lifeboat Number 8 | At 1:10 A.M. lifeboat number 8 cast away from the boat Titanic on it's port side. The man in charge was Thomas Jones. It could of had the capacity of 68 people,but only 28 people where aboard when it cast off.Since, it was like one of the first lifeboats cast off there was about 24 ladies on the lifeboat and about 4 men(it was actually the 5th one to cast off). You know,that mainly, it was just the ladies because ladies go first.And the only reason there was even men was because all these men were part of the crew.

Straus' My Titanic Scavenger Hunt A new inquiry has been launched regarding the sinking of the Titanic. You have been hired as a researcher to find the answers and possible solutions to some of the events surrounding the demise of the great ship. Use the questions and links below to aid you in your search for truth and understanding. You have the option of working alone or choosing a partner. Answers are to be recorded in a word document and placed in the drop box for your class period on my website. 1.What are some factors that played a role in determining who survived the tragedy? Was there equity? Would the same rules apply today if the same tragedy happened? 2.In 1912 journalistic photography was still enjoying its adolescence, the editorial cartoonist, therefore, provided a familiar and significant service reflecting the popular emotion and sentiment of the tragedy not captured by film. Two basic slants were taken by the artists: The following evocative images will highlight these themes. Define them as you would interpret each theme. 3.Locate a survivor’s story from one of the occupants from your lifeboat research. What was their story? 4.Why do you think the Titanic sank? After composing your response, check to see if you agree with the facts as we know them. Did you find different evidence on another site? Make sure to list the site and your findings. 5.Much speculation has been made as to whether 3rd class passengers were locked below and not allowed the opportunity to save themselves as was seen in The Titanic movie. Using the Gates power point linked on my website and The Movie versus History site, come to a conclusion as to what you believe the facts to be. 6.Could more people have been saved? Look at a diagram of the boat and put your mind to work. What floatable objects were on board the Titanic that could have been thrown overboard to save more people? Also, click on the tab marked ship to see images of how areas were furnished for more ideas. 7.Why were the passengers going to America? 8.What changes would you recommend for sea travel with your knowledge of the Titanic's disaster and tragedy?

13: Primary sources: | Sources that contain raw, original, unevaluated information. Coming straight from someone or something who was there when the event occurred. Examples: An interview, a diary.
14: What we learned: Me and my partner Kayla didn't know much about the titanic going into the project, but after all the research it's as if we were on the same boat with everyone....Well if you have seen the movie, you know the basic story. Four days into a transatlantic crossing, the ship hit an iceberg just before midnight then sank hours later. In one of the deadliest disasters in maritime history, over 1500 people died in the icy water south of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. We also found that it only took about 15 minutues to sink to the very bottom of the ocean. And, that NO BOAT IS UNSINKABLE completly.
