Oh, NO! Your plane has just CRASHED! Fortunately, you and the other passengers have survived! You were able to salvage 12 items from the wreckage. Your task is to work with your small group to identify the items that will help you survive until you are...hopefully...rescued!

Plane Crash is a highly engaging activity for ages 12 and up. It will get your students working together and thinking outside the box as they rank items from most effective (#1 Ranking) to least effective (#12 Ranking) in terms of surviving a few hours in the rough Canadian winter.

What's Included?
1. Link to a 25-Slide Google Presentation filled with information that will lead your students in the right direction.
2. Link to a Google Form where they will submit their final answers. Once the answers are submitted, the students will receive immediate and detailed feedback as to why their rankings were right or wrong. The best part? You don't have to correct the answers! It has been done for you!
3. Link to a Google Doc with detailed reasons for the ranking of the items by an expert.
4. Eight color-coded sets of Ranking Cards (PDF format) for those tactile learners. Just download, print, cut, and laminate if desired.
5. Teacher Notes, Suggestions, and Links to all of the Google materials.

**Please take note! The Google Slides, Form, and Doc are NOT included with this download. The links to these are found on the Teacher Notes that ARE included with the download, along with the Ranking Cards and Terms of Use/Credits page. The links will prompt you to "Make a Copy" of the Google apps. You will then be able to access them in your Google Drive. I have made both the Slides and the Form editable in case you need to make any changes to fit your particular needs.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me through the Questions Tab on my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. I'll be happy to help if you have any problems.
