What is an iceberg?Icebergs are pieces of ice that formed on land and float inan ocean or lake. Icebergs come in all shapes and sizes,from ice-cube-sized chunks to ice islands the size of a smallcountry. Why are icebergs important? Icebergs pose a danger to ships traversing the North Atlantic and the waters around Antarctica. After the Titanic sank near Newfoundland in 1912, the United States and twelve other countries formed the International Ice Patrol to warn ships of icebergs in the North Atlantic. The International Ice Patrol uses airplanes and radars to track icebergs that float into majorHow do icebergs form, and where do they go? shipping lanes.Icebergs form when chunks of ice calve, or break off, fromglaciers, ice shelves, or a larger iceberg. Icebergs travel withocean currents, sometimes smashing up against the shore orgetting caught in shallow waters.
Mir 2 Submersible Argo Dr. Robert BallardOn September 1, 1985, Dr. Robert Ballard and a team of scientists discovered the sunkenluxury liner R.M.S. Titanic. The Titanic was found below more than 12,400 feet of water. Itwas first photographed by a deep-towed sonar and video camera system called Argo.In 1986, Dr. Ballard further explored the wreck of the Titanic in a tiny submarine. He sent adeep-sea robot, named J.J., into the ship. As it explored, the robot sent pictures to Ballard.He called J.J. a "swimming eyeball.“ J.J. glided down Titanics grand staircase. It peeked intoher gym. The robot also gazed at chairs, bowls, and other items on the seafloor.Before leaving, Ballard wanted to honor the tragic ship. He left a plaque to remember thepeople who had died. Aside from that, he left everything exactly the way he found it.Ballard didnt see Titanic again for years. He went back in June 2004. He wanted to know howthe great ship was doing. He found that other visitors have really damaged the ship.Submarines have punched holes into Titanics main deck. And people have taken about 6,000things from the wreck. These include dishes, lamps, a statue, a safe, and even pieces of theship herself.
Lesson Plans and Hand outs will accompany this section Science Do-It-Yourself Iceberg Science And other activities http://www.titanicscience.com/T Sci-ActivityGuideFinal.pdfIcebergsThanks to Alex Gabrielli and Mrs. Moffitt for explaining our science activities. This is a scanned copy of the photographic print of the iceberg with which the RMS TITANICsupposedly collided on April 14, 1912 at latitude 41-46N, longitude 50-14W.This iceberg was photographed by the chief steward of the liner Prinze Adelbert on the morningof April 15, 1912, just a few miles south of where the Titanic went down. The steward hadnt yetheard about the Titanic. What caught his attention was the smear of red paint along the base ofthe berg, indication that it had collided with a ship sometime in the previous twelve hours. Thisphoto and informaiton was taken from "UNSINKABLE" The Full Story of RMS Titanic Written byDaniel Allen Butler, Stackpole Books 1998. Other accounts indicated that there were severalicebergs in the vicinity where the TITANIC collided

Scriptural LessonsIn this life wealthy people may have some advantages, but in death, all are equal.Use the following scripture verses to have children discuss how God is present, God is the Great Equalizer of all humans,and make goals for life that reflect living by God’s Word daily.Ecclesiastes 5:15 -- As he came from his mothers womb, naked shall he return, To go as he came; And he shall takenothing from his labor Which he may carry away in his hand.Ecclesiastes 9:11 -- The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men ofunderstanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.Besides rich people, the Titanic included many poor people in third class. People who paid $80,000 for a suite diedalongside people who paid the equivalent of $700. John Jacob Astor and other wealthy men were turned away from thelifeboats, because the rule was "women and children first."Likewise, no amount of money can ultimately prevent a mans death. When a rich man dies, he leaves just like thepoorest man who ever lived.Therefore, God warns men not to trust in riches.1 Timothy 6:17 -- Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches butin the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.Matthew 16:26 -- For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a mangive in exchange for his soul? [Jeremiah 9:23,24]After this life all men, rich and poor, will face their eternal destinies. John Jacob Astor, with all his millions, could no morebuy a place in heaven than he could in one of those lifeboats.When we face Jesus in judgment, what matters will be how we lived, not how much we were worth. What is your goal inlife? Do you live as though this world is most important or heaven is most important? Are you living so you will be readyfor the day you die?
ArtifactsGoals:The students will become familiar with artifacts as they relate to shipwrecks, specifically theTitanic.The students will be able to identify connections between past artifacts and their moderncounterparts.The students will exercise their library skills in the study of their artifact and will use criticalthinking skills to reconstruct their particular artifact, which will be assessed in their journalthat is kept throughout the project.Materials: •books, magazines (i.e. National Geographic), and pictures of ocean treasures •access to computers that are linked to the internet •$5 for each group (for materials to build artifact) •a list of artifacts recovered from Titanic •access to the Titanic Index Find out what you can about the Titanics band members. What kind of music would they have played on board the ship? Why are the musicians and their music such an important part of Titanic mythology?
Poetry Titanic I hear the whistle as we set sail.Brainstorming I taste the scrumptious seafood in the First Class dining room. I see the decadent Grand Staircase.Goals:After saying the word "Titanic," the students I smell the fresh paint andwill brainstorm at least fifteenwords/ideas/thoughts associated with the salty air.Titanic. Working in pairs, students will typetheir answers in to their word processors and I feel the icy cold water as Isave the results (These can be utilized at a go down into the deep Atlantic.later date).Have students share their ideas/thoughts withthe rest of the class.After reading and examining SELECTED A.T.M.PAGES of the Titanic site, the students will beable to identify the emotions they felt andwhich of the five senses were used.

With the 100th anniversary of thesinking of the RMS Titanic on the April15, 2012, we recall the events that led tothe tragic events on that night so longago. Although a great deal of time haspassed, people’s fascination with theTitanic is still going strong. What arethose things that draw us to the story?Is it the Titanics mammoth size andopulence, characteristics of the gildedage? Is it the incredulous lack ofattention to safety having a limitedamount of lifeboats? Is it theunfortunate, highly improbable eventswhich leaves us repeatedly saying, "Ifonly"?At this 100 year anniversary of theTitanic, as always, our attention isriveted by the helpless 1,500 passengers. April 15, 1912 –The 4th and 5th grade students at NotreDame Academy plan to honor the April 15, 2012grand ship and its many passengers.The students will present their projectsand share their knowledge at the AprilHome and School Meeting. Please joinus for this special evening.
