Titanic Scavenger Hunt

With every event, there is more than one person involved, so they each have a different perspective on the situation. Not everyone sees everything that happens, but they hear about them later. In this case there are a lot of people involved from many different “groups” or “classes” of people. Be sure to look at how this situation affected each of these groups.
· the first class passengers
· the third class passengers
· the employees on the ship
· the employees that were not on the ship
· the families of those who were on the ship
· the media also treats each of these groups in a poor way… what happened?
