Oh No! Pirates have attacked our small ship and now we are sinking!
Your students will have to use critical thinking in order to be successful under pressure. Not only do they have to quickly choose 20 items to help them survive until help arrives, but they must learn how to persuade their partner to agree with them.
1. Original PowerPoint Presentation of "Lost at Sea! A Critical Thinking Activity!"
2. Student Activity Sheet (pdf)
3. NEW!! Link to Google Slides Presentation of "Lost at Sea! A Critical Thinking Activity!"
4. NEW!! Link to Google Drawings Graphic Organizer for students to list their choices, along with reasons why they chose the item and a picture.
5. Teacher Notes with directions for the activity and how to access the Google Docs.
Lesson Suggestion: Once the students have agreed upon 20 items, I would suggest having them create a graphic organizer that displays their choices. I would also encourage them to include their reasoning for choosing the item. I have included links to Inspiration, Lucid Chart, and Mindmomo and a link to a Graphic Organizer made with Google Drawings.
