On April 14, 1912, the maiden voyage of the great Titanic tragically struck an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the north Atlantic sea. Even 100 years later, the once believed unsinkable ocean liner still fascinates people of all ages. The students of Sonntag are no exception. Students from Kindergarten through 5th grade (as well as their librarian) have shown a tremendous interest in learning about the Titanic and the people who traveled on this ship. Even though the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic isn't until April, student interest inspired Mrs. Mattei to create a display for students to learn more about this amazing ship.
