This worksheet is for the episode BOYS ADRIFT (Season 3, Episode 5).
Episode Summary: In April 2005, Troy Driscoll and his friend Josh Long attempted to go shark fishing in a less than seaworthy boat. When a riptide drags them into the Atlantic ocean, they face extreme dehydration, hunger, madness, and weather for 6 days while awaiting rescue, watching helplessly as other boats pass by without seeing them.
Provided is a 22-question worksheet to accompany the episode which focuses on science topics like: human body injuries, hypothermia, the ocean, ecosystems, weather, and survival.
Questions on the assignment go in order and will help students focus on key science topics including: dehydration, oceans, and survival skills. The worksheet is given as a MS-Word document which will allow easy modifying to fit your class.
*The video series needed for viewing can be purchased through a variety of sellers both as physical media or through streaming viewing (including Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Discovery). Episodes also still air on Animal Planet, Science Channel, and National Geographic Channel. I highly recommend tracking down this series, students love it!
