Titanic Scrapbook: Step Three: Iceberg Ahead!

Newspaper of the Sinking of the Titanic

Create a newspaper article which includes a picture and headline. Use the links to the left to read primary sources, newspapers from the time period, to create your own newspaper detailing the events of April 14, 1912.

You need to consider POINT OF VIEW when writing your article. Are you writing for an American newspaper? Are you a journalist from Belfast or England? Are you writing from the day of the tragedy or weeks later?

Include a headline (title), a picture with a caption, the date and answer the following six questions:

1) What happened?

2) When did it happen?

3) Where did it happen?

4) Why did it happen?

5) Who did it happen to?

6) How it happened?
