Insert your information notes below:

Question 1 information:
Did you know that the Titanic weighed 46,000 tons  when it was completed, but when there were fresh fruit, fresh meat, passengers  and other stuff on board it weighed 52,310 tons.
The length of the Titanic was 882 feet long, The Titanics height was 175 feet high
and the Titanics width was 92 meters wide.

Question 2 information:
As she was gliding through the night a humungous iceberg collides through the ship making big large holes on the side of the Titanic making the ocean water enter the ship. As the water enters the ship making it heavy on the front of the Titanic which is called a bow and a stern is the back of the boat. The bow of the ship tilts through the water leaving only the stern facing up. As the stern faces up the engines and the boilers makes the back of the Titanic heavy,and there it goes the Titanic is gone it breaks in half.Titanic goes down but the Titanic didn’t fully break so that meant the bow took the stern down with it, and thats how the Titanic sank.

Question 3 information:
The Titanic took 3 years to build because they would of have to put all the compartments on and build all the rooms for 3,500 passengers and crew. There were only 3,000 workers so they would of had to get up really early to get it finished. On the Titanic’s hull they used 3 million 2 pound rivets. The Titanic’s rudder weighed 20 tons and each anchor weighed 15 tons. The Titanic had 29 boilers and burned more than 650 tons of coal everyday.

Question 4 information:
The crew first noticed Titanic was heading towards an huge iceberg, the crew shouted out to Captain Smith “Iceberg Iceberg” he turned and turned but it was too late they just knew once Titanic hit that iceberg it was doomed. When the Titanic hit the iceberg there were passengers sleeping because there it was 11:40pm when it happened. It took 2 hours or longer when the Titanic actually went inside the ocean.

Question 5 information:
At that same time there was another boat really close to the Titanic. The other boat that was close was coming to rescue the passengers on the ship. They woke the captain up and told him what happened. The captain would’ve been really  shocked once he heard the word iceberg.  

Question 6 information:

On the ship there were  75,000 pounds of fresh meat including 9,500 pounds of ham,bacon and sausage. There were also 16,850 bottles of wine, 130,000 pieces  of cookware, cutlery and glassware, and obviously approximately 2,200 passengers on board
