Titanic Day 5: The Rescue

Today, our final day using math facts about the Titanic, our focus was the rescue of the Titanic survivors.

I did not want to reinvent the wheel, so I found a few websites that helped me with facts and questions:

I took the information and questions from these two sites and turned them into a Hollywood Squares game using a template, created by Mark Damon,  that I also found on the web:

We played the game with two teams.  I did have large groups, but each person had to show their work on notebook paper and turn it in.  By working together, they were able to think aloud and explain their thinking to each other to justify their answers.
