5th Grade Compare and Contrast

Last week we took a look at the voyage of the Mayflower. This week, we will investigate the voyage of another ship with historical importance, the Titanic. 

Step One (Compare & Contrast Voyages): Work with your table partner to have each map (Mayflower & Titanic) open on two computer screens in front of you. Work together,  to fill out your first Venn Diagram, as you compare the voyages of each ship.

Step Two (Compare & Contrast Ships): Now open the Mayflower up on your screen and open the Titanic on your partner's screen. Fill out your second Venn Diagram, this time comparing the ships themselves.
