This is a Project Based Learning activity! There are actually two different projects in this product. YOu do not need to complete one to do the other! Project 1:Imagine that you and your group were sailing on a ship. There was a bad storm and you became shipwrecked on a deserted island. You and your group will have to survive there for a year without contact with the outside world. Your island is in the Pacific Ocean. The days are very hot and the evenings usually bring a cool breeze. There are NO Electronics!You have no contact with the outside world.You and your group were lucky enough to have found some items from the ship that have washed up on shore. Choose 5 items from the list that your group has found. Discuss this with your group. You should spend a lot of time thinking about each object and how it will benefit your survival.
Students will work on the following: water, shelter, roles and responsibilities
laws/rules, map, food, leadership, leisure, daily schedule and more!
Project 2: I prefer to complete this project first. It's a great introduction.
Students build a 3-D island. Research, Sketch, brainstorm, plan, prepare, complete and reflect. So much fun!
