Titanic Unit Study

All this term we have been studying the Titanic. It's been super informative and I've personally enjoyed it HEAPS! I know the children have too, though Hannah has had moments of "NOT AGAIN" when the word has been mentioned!!
One of the idea's I got one Sunday planning night was to make Paper Dolls from the Edwardian period for the little girls. I SOOO LOVE GOOGLE!!! To type in "Edwardian paper dolls" and then to find something is the coolest feeling and wonderful help and resource! YAY love it!
So I found THIS super site from a lady who has drawn them all and there are other periods too. I printed out 3 for each of the girls and ALL of last week they were happily colouring and me happily (well mostly) cutting all the little bits out X2!! Yes cut it out and then again after laminating... HUGE job but totally worth the smiles and hours of play that they have gotten out of them!
Of course with all this Zeke wanted some too...... ummmm.... boy paper dolls are much harder to find!! In the end I did come up with something but I'll show you that soon when I've got the pic's!
There's LOTS more we've been up to and it's certainly not too late to do a study yourself!! There is LOADS of info out there at the moment as last month the14th April was the 100th anniversary of it's sinking.

 If you'd like to see more that I did with this amazing anniversary, go to my Stamping Blog HERE and check it out! As I said, I've had lots of fun with this study!!
