This activity is a great way to begin a unit on scarcity and to build up anticipation about the topic! Students will work in groups to make life or death decisions about how to survive on a deserted island after their cruise ship sinks during Spring Break! Students will learn about the concept of scarcity without even realizing it while participating in an exciting classroom simulation!
Thorough teacher directions included!
All materials included (with link to a random dice throw website if you don't have dice handy in the classroom!)
Pairs great with my *FREE* Scarcity vs. Shortage Powerpoint lesson!!
