Fun Course

I really loved learning bout the Titanic. There was a lot of cool facts about it.

Terrific Titanic

I think this course was really cool. Mrs. Wildman made it. I learned that the Titanic smoke stacks blew off and hit the water. There is a fun app called Titanic and you answer questions about the Titanic. I wish I could have been on The Titanic but I wouldn't want to sink with it. I think you should check this course out.
