Iceberg Ahead!

Topic: 5D Changing state

Major plans are being drawn up to transform a disused shipyard in Belfast into a dedicated heritage centre for RMS Titanic. This task uses this context to explore the changes that occur in the water cycle. Children will plan an investigation into factors affecting the melting of icebergs. They will use their knowledge of icebergs to consider whether the sinking of the Titanic was avoidable. This will form the basis of a poster to be displayed in the new heritage centre.
An Upd8 task designed for CCEA (Northern Ireland) in line with the Revised Curriculum requirements for the World Around Us and Thinking Skills & Personal Capabilities.
