Students can discuss the role of safety procedures and whether there were enough life boats on the Titanic. Students working in small groups will then be provided with a variety of primary sources which support or challenge their views. Ask them to decide whether the Titanic was safe for all passengers and to present their findings through a report which can be visual, spoken or acted out.
