The main idea is that the author is telling us how big the titanic was.
Yes, the author is telling us how big the Titanic was. We discussed this as a group as the main idea of p. 7. What do think the main idea of pages 4-6 could be? Thanks for capitalizing the beginning of your sentence.
Yes,the story is talking about how big the Titanic is but you forgot to put the genre.
why didn't you tell the page number it is on?
I like your answer though
I agree with your answer but, can you tell me more about the titanic?
I think genre of the book is history I know this because it happened a long time ago. I think the main idea for page 7 is the tianic's length and how tall it is.
I like how you told what genre this book is and how you knew. Would you call history, fiction or non-fiction and why?
Great job telling what page you gave the main idea.
I would call it non-fiction because it actually happened.
What do like about this book so far
i agree with your answer because you restated the question,and i have the same schema.
The genre of the book is nonfiction i know this because it gives you true information.
The main idea is how the titanic was lost and how it got found.
I noticed that you were able to tell how you the book was nonfiction. Another way to say true information is to say informational text.
On your main idea, I see that you used words from the title of the book. You are inferring that the Titanic will be found from the title, but have we read about the Titanic being found yet? If so, please let me know what page you found the information.
I was inferring about it because I read The Titanic: Lost and Found on the internet it is on page 13.But no we didn't read about it yet as a class.
The genre of this book is history.
The main idea of this book is facts about the titanic and how tall it is.
The Titanic: Lost and Found is a historical book. Would history be non-fiction or fiction? When explaining how you know what genre this book is, you can mention that it is an informational book because it gives us historical information about the Titanic.
Your main idea is correct for the pages we have read so far in Titanic: Lost and Found. We are learning lots of facts about the Titanic. I think the author is giving us lots of background information.
History is non-fiction Mrs.Fairchild
Are you talking about page 7 or the whole book?
DS your right beacuse they did talk about how big the titanic was in pg.7
The genre is that it is history about the titanic.
You are right, this book is telling us about history, but history itself is not a genre. Would you call this book fiction or non-fiction and why? You could call it a historical book within fiction or nonfiction, and then explain how you know this.
I would call this book a nonfiction book.
I think the main idea of the pages we have read is the Titanic on the sea .
I know this because we have not seen the book say the Titanic has sunk.
The genre of this book is history.
You are right, we have not read about the Titanic sinking yet. Can you tell me more about what you mean by "Titanic on the sea"?
I agree the book tells us history, but history is not exactly a genre. You may want to tell if it is fiction or non-fiction, and then explain that you know this because it tells us history.
The genre of this book is historical nonfiction. I know this because this is historical and it is nonfiction. The main idea of this story so far is how the titanic was before it crashed.
I love your genre title of historical nonfiction. You are so specific about what this book is that I think we should call it a historical nonfiction book!
The pages we have read so far in Titanic: Lost and Found are about the Titanic before it crashed. Would you please give me two details about the Titanic before it crashed?
Well thank you Mrs Faircild. There were two different classes.The 3 class was only $36.00 the 1 class was 4,350
I think the genre of the book is a historical book, I know this because my teachers taut me what a ''Genre'' is and so since a genre means is a type of book, the Titanic is a historical book. I think the main idea is the Titanic was really big and people said it was ''unsinkable'',but those people were very wrong...it sunk on April 14th,1912.My opinion is the Titanic is very...and I mean very interesting.
You are correct, this is a historical book. Would a historical book be nonfiction or fiction and why?
The date the Titanic sunk is a detail. Would you consider it an important detail for the main idea of pages 4-7? Please explain your thinking.
Well,I think the Titanic is in the series of non-fiction because it tells true stuff about the Titanic and in the Titanic movie(which a movie I haven't watched before),there were made-up characters,also in the book the author made the story about the Titanic more true than the movie:)!
VN, I like your answer because its true and has punctuation also you told when it sunk, what people thought about it and, you told your opinion.
AM,thank you for the complement,I like your kind words:)!
The genre of this book is a non-fiction type.I know this because non-fiction is information about the topic.
The main idea of this book so far is about people on the boat and the last paragraph on pg.7 tells about what size the titanic is.
You are absolutely correct, this is a non-fiction story. Great job explaining that non-fiction gives us information about a topic!
Your main idea is right on track with what has happened so far. Can you tell me a bit more about the people on the boat?
Well there were a lot of people on the boat. There were 900 crew and 1,300 passengers
The genre of this book isa nonfiction book
I know that it is a nonfiction book because it tells information.
The main idea of this book is about the titnic and I know this because on the blog it shows a picture of the titanic.
You are correct about the genre of the book, Titanic: Lost and Found. Thank you for explaining your thinking about genre.
Can you tell me more about the main idea of Titanic: Lost and Found. The book is about the Titanic, but can you summarize the details of what we have learned the Titanic so far?
Thank you Mrs. Fairchild for saying what you liked about my comment and yes! I will tell more about the main idea.
What do you like about this book so far smw
Veva why do you think that the genre of the story is historical?
The main idea of the genre is the titanic going to so many countrys to get pepole and other things. But then they crahed into an iceburg and hundreds of people died.
I agree with you that the main idea of the Titanic is that there were many people and much cargo on the ship and that it crashed into an iceberg and hundreds of people died. You do not need to say the main idea of the genre. But it is interesting to think about how the genre impacts the main idea of a piece. We know this is an informational nonfiction genre. So, the main idea will be related to this information.
SMW,I know that because the book does not talk about unicorns magicly out of nowhere,saves the Titanic.That is how I know that this book is historical:D!
I think the ship would look awesome if I was on the Titanic. To bad it sunk.
Mrs.Monkes I have a question for you. Do you know why people that had lots of money had to get more things than the people that didnt have that much money?
I have a question,were the 1st class passengers vain to 2nd and 3rd class?If they were that was mean:(.
