In each book of this series a young hero gets into serious trouble and just barely survives one of the famous historical disasters of our times. The series includes:

  • I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912
  • I Survived the Shark Attacks of 1916
  • I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001
  • I Survived the Nazi Invasion, 1944
  • I Survived the Bombing of Pearl Harbor, 1941
  • I Survived the Battle of Gettysburg, 1863
  • I Survived the Destruction of Pompeii  AD 79
  • I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005
  • I Survived the San Francisco Earthquake, 1906
  • I Survived the Japanese Tsunami, 2011
  • and many more. The series keeps growing.

The books work really well at different levels. I have used them at the end of year 2 (12 year olds) in AHS or with more advanced learners at MS. Since the stories are really riveting page-turners, these books will also work at much higher levels. The children cannot put them down – because they feel and suffer with the main character. This is what “flow” means — forgetting that you are reading in the foreign language — walking in another person’s shoes and being caught in the world of the book.

Here I am sharing the task booklet that worked really well in a year 3 class.
