A fun, small group activity in which students use critical thinking and problem solving skills to survive! The students are given a scenario in which they are on a sinking ship and have just enough time to grab 7 items. The group then needs to decide which 7 items, out of the list provided, they would decide to bring with them. The students also have to give supporting reasons for their choices and how the items will help them survive. Included in the lesson are teacher instructions and the 5 page student handout.
