Working on a ship is one of the world's most dangerous jobs. Savage weather, hidden rocks and reefs, and the vastness of the sea make for unpredictable conditions, so it is no wonder that the seafloors are littered with more than three million shipwrecks. Mysterious Shipwrecks offers a detailed look at several fascinating shipwrecks around the world. The book can also be used to teach students how to make inferences and draw conclusions as well as to identify adjectives. The book and lesson are also available for levels V and Z1.
