WOW! What a ship! And it is all brand new! My name is Ruth and my parents purchased 3 Second Class tickets on the Titanic for our trip to America. My father is a doctor and he paid $65.00 for each of our tickets. We have cabin for our family to stay in on our trip. The room is beautiful! It is just like a hotel room. The bed is made of mahogany and the floor is a pretty linoleum.The dining room was grand with beautiful linens-table cloths and napkins. All the silver makes everything sparkle. We have wonderful 4 course meals! Everyday we go for a walk on the deck. When we walk we see the lifeboats because that is where they are stored. I can't wait to get to America to see the Statue of Liberty!
What do u mean by the room was beautiful? Why did u want to see the Statue of Liberty Ruth?
What was one of your favorite thing to do on the Titanic even though u don't have many fun things to do because your not first class.Why did you chose to be a 2nd class passenger instead of 1st or 3rd class passenger
My name is Ernie Jackson and i'm 11 years old . I'm a 3rd class passenger o the Titanic . My parents live in America! 3rd class rooms are kind of crowded but my grandparents and I sleep in a cabin.Our tickets show us our time to eat and if we are late, we go hungry until the next meal.When we get to America,I hope we have a better life.(Unlike 1st class passengers,we don't have any restaurants.)
This is very interesting. What was the food like? Can you describe the cabins? What are you excited for when you get to America?
The food in first class was very fancy.We had restaurants were we could pick our own foods.The cabins had sitting rooms and it was beautiful.I am excited to meet lots of people in America and make new friends.
I'm excited about meeting new people and making new friends!
(p.s the cabins were really really small.)
Dear Ernie (AK),
Did you ever miss a meal? I was just wondering how hungry you were if you did end up missing a meal.
You have 4 details about the 3rd class passengers on the Titanic! I really like your sentence, "Unlike 1st class passengers, we don't have any restaurants." You might want to put that sentence right after the sentence about going hungry until the next meal for it to make even more sense to the reader.
I've only missed one meal
How come you wanted to be a 2nd class passenger and not a 1st or 3rd class passenger?
I'm on the R.M.S Titanic.My name is Maria. I am 12 years old. I am going with my 22 year old cousin as a first class passenger on the Titanic. The grand stair case is beautiful. We get the best spot on the deck. My cousin is a millionaire unlike me and my mom and dad. My mom is a maid and my dad doesn't have a job.They don't get a lot of money. I love the cabin with the lace quilts,and the sitting rooms. We had a gym , swimming pool,Turkish bath,a library,restaurants,and very pretty dinning rooms. I liked the swimming pool the best. I read in the library and ate in the restaurants. My cousin told me not to go to the second class deck. I cant imagine anything more beautiful than this! This is the prettiest thing I have ever seen!
I'm a little bit confused. Your parents just let you take a long trip across the Atlantic Ocean with only your cousin? How are you planning to get home? What food in the restaurant did you like best?
About my parents their already in america. My favorite food was Mutton chops. Mrs. hegamaster
What do you mean when you say, "We get the best spot on the deck."? Why can't you go to the 2nd class deck? So, did your cousin buy your ticket for you? The ship sounds amazing!
You have 11 details about the Titanic! You seemed to enjoy this assignment more than any we have done so far since starting our study of the Titanic. Did you enjoy this task and if so why?
I can't go on the second class deck because my cousin told me not too and my cousin didn't want me to be seen with them. Yes my cousin bought me a ticket he is a millionaire!
I didn't tell anyone before my uncle is john jacub aster and maddie aster is my cousin she is 15.
My name is Denies Williams.My mothers name is Martha Williams. we are first class passengers we heard about the titanic so we wanted to go on it. I was excited to go on the titanic! My mother paid $8,700.00 for 2 tickets. On the Titanic our cabins were very beautiful! They had sitting rooms. In first class we could visit friends in several different lounges, restaurants, and dining rooms. They had a gym, a pool, a Turkish bath, a library, and amazing sunny decks. Our meals were made from the fanciest and most expensive foods. First class passengers could choose their meals from the menu. We ate at tables decorated with china plates, crystal, and fresh flowers. What a great ship!
It sounds like an amazing trip. What did you like best?
Dear Denies (SMW),
Wow, $8700.00 is a lot of money, but it sounds like you did have a lot of nice things. What was your favorite thing to do on the ship?
You have 13 details about the Titanic! It looks like you really went back to your articles and books to find your evidence of what first class was like on the Titanic!
Ruth my favorite thing to do on the Titanic was to swim in the swimming pool and read many books in the library. But mostly I liked to play on the deck.
Hello my name is Michael Miller and I am a first class passenger and i was excising in the gymnasium .And my dad Jordan he paid 4,350$ per person to be on the Titanic.We have nice china plates it was a beautiful Titanic ship it has a nice sunny deck.
This sounds like s great ship and a fun trip. Can you tell me more about what your rooms were like?
Dear Michael (DM),
You mentioned that you were exercising in the gymnasium. Was that your favorite thing to do on the Titanic?
You noted 3 details about the Titanic. Did you find the scroll, the book, or the Titanic assessment article most helpful in finding facts about what first class was like on the Titanic?
Yes, my favorite thing in the Titanic was to exercize in the Titanic.
Hey,my name is James Scott. I am a first class passenger on the Titanic! What a magnificent ship it was! We had our own cabin! We even had our own sitting room! There were lots of fun things to do in first class one of the things I liked to do was go to the gymnasium. My father name is James Scott SR. he paid $ 8,700 for our two tickets. Also we went to go swimming it even had a library. We had a restaurants.What a great ship it was until we hit an iceberg it was so sad to see the ship go so early.
First thing very quickly- in 1912 they wouldn't have said, "hey." Especially a first class passenger would have said, "hello" or, "good day." Otherwise, great post. One question though- the swimming pool had a library? Be careful how you combine your thoughts and use your punctuation.
It sounds like you were having a wonderful time on the Titanic! You are right, it was very sad to see the ship go so early.
You have 8 details about the Titanic! What have you enjoyed most about learning about the Titanic?
I enjoyed learning about it's history and people that were aboard on her maiden voyage.
Wow! Everything was so fancy! Hi Im Josh Im a first class passenger on the Titanic Im 15 years old. I paid $4,350.00 just to be a first class passenger. My cabin had a orange curtin with a realy warm blanket. I had a electric heater. My favorite place to go is to the pool and the gym.
Who did you travel with? I don't think your parents would let you go alone. Why was the pool and gym your favorite?
My mom and me are going to America to visit my dad there I like to go to the pool so I can with a ball
dear mrs. fairchild why did you want to become a teacher
If you are 15 years old, how did you afford your first class ticket? Why did you enjoy going to the pool and the gym?
You have 5 facts about the Titanic. Would you tell me your source for the information regarding the electric heater? I know I looked at it the other day, but I don't remember where you found that piece of information.
Hi i am a first class passenger on the titanic. My name is Rosa and i am rich. I am 13 years old. We eat the most expensive foods and it was fancy. Are rooms were flawless. We have a gymnasium and a pool.I knew i was on a special trip.My mom died when i was 5 years old. I only have my dad. He had to pay for two tickets that cost 4,350.00.
So what were the rooms like? Describe them to me. Why would I have wanted to be a first class passenger instead of a third class passenger?
What was great about first class is the rooms were flawless-perfect. They had separated rooms and third class did not. third class only had one room field with girls and one room field with boys.
What does "fancy" mean in your 4th sentence? Can you describe it a bit more? What was your favorite thing to do aboard the Titanic?
You have 5 details about the Titanic. Could you tell me a little more about your flawless rooms?
WOW! My life is amazing on the R.M.S Titanic! My name is Makena straus and I am 10 years old, My parents were Ida (mom) and Isidor straus (dad).They died in a fire 2 years ago when I was 8 years old. I had a lot of money, I had enough money to be in first class. I got 1st class! It was wonderful, The best thing I liked was sleeping in! I like to read, so I read a lot. I was pretty smart! I had a beautiful staircase! I sat with new friends I made when it was time to eat. We talked about our life before the Titanic existed. It was fun! The Titanic was amazing and I would go swimming with my friends. The Titanic was the biggest ship ever! R.M.S meant Royal Mail Ship. I like how they added RMS with it.
As a 10 year old you traveled from England to America on your own? You would have needed someone to go with you. You told me a lot of "stuff" but not a lot of detail about the ship. What did you see on the ship? I want to see the ship through your eyes.
Well, nobody went with me but one of my friends in 1st class said they brought a puppy with them. She said she doesn't want him anymore, so I did want someone or something to keep me company on my trip to America. So I asked my friend if I could have her puppy, she said yes! The puppy was so cute! I named it Cloe. I thought that was a cute name! That was who went with me. As a 10 year old, my parents told me I knew how to solve my problems.
Dear Makena (VN),
I notice that you said you liked to read. So, did you read in the library or in your cabin? Would you please tell me a little more about the meals in first class?

I read in my cabin. I read A LOT of books from the library!
I am Maddie Astor and I am 15. My parents are Madeleine and John Astor. My dad is a New York millionaire and my mom she stayed home with my sister Madeline . Our rooms were sitting rooms. When we eat we choose for menus. We have many courses. The Titanic is the best ship.
Why was the Titanic the best ship? Describe it for me. What would a 15 year old have liked about the ship?
Dear Maddie (AD),
What was your favorite thing to do on the Titanic? Can you tell me a little more about what you saw on the Titanic?

It made me feel like royalty.
Also im a 1st class passenger.
I saw lots of rich people
