Titanic notebooking pages--Homeschool Sanity Brag Thursday Link-Up

Did you know that this year is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic?

Did you also know there are much better movies about the sinking than the most modern one, which is flaky, to say the least! Our favorite is Titanic--which stars Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwyck, and Robert Wagner. The end of the film is the best--with sacrificial love and the turning of all hearts to the Lord as the ship was sinking through the singing of hymns.

We found two really nifty books at the thrift store and gave them to the children for Christmas; Titanic: The Ship of Dreams, and The Titanic: The Extraordinary Story of the "Unsinkable" Ship. Sarah (13) was so interested that she decided that she and her sister, Olivia (10), should do a notebooking project on the subject. Here is the result:

Sarah cut each piece from regular construction paper, and then she and her brother, Ryan, embellished the pieces with acrylic paints.

One of Sarah's pages--the photo is of the captain of the ship.

One of Olivia's pages.
