Finding the wreck of the Titanic in pitch black water is a challenge. Transponders help the submarine to locate it. It takes an hour and a quarter for them to sink to the seabed, which is an indication of the depths to be reached.

Classroom Ideas

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.
