As a culmination of their study of the sinking of the Titanic, Pembroke Hill fourth graders presented a play about the people on the famous ship.
As playgoers entered their theater, they were met with large scale backdrops of various scenes from the ship: the skyline, the Grand Staircase and the ship itself. All were completed, from concept to final painting, by the students.
Each student played the role of a passenger on the ship during its maiden voyage. Through these passengers' eyes and experiences, students told the story of the Titanic. They shared stories of what the ship was like, its food, its cabins, the gold statue on the Grand Staircase. They also talked about their dreams for a better life in America, who their traveling partners were, their escape from the ship and how the experience affected them the rest of their lives.
Enjoy the photos!
