Hi everyone, here's a lesson that I used the week after I taught the "WHO would you save?" shipwreck scenario lesson (Found here: http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,1769.msg5829.html#msg5829). This lesson is a "WHAT would you save?" scenario, but this time the students select their items randomly and decided together with a partner what they would do with the items.

The instructions are as follows:

First, put the students in pairs. You can of course put them in larger groups, but I find, the bigger the group, the more room there is for one person in the group to do most of the work.

On the 2nd slide of the PPT, the pairs are to chose 5 of the squares (Ex A1, A2, C1,C2, E1). Make sure that each pair has chosen their 5 squares before continuing further.

Then continue with the PPT. Slides 3-24 explain to the students why they are on a deserted island, what is on the island, as well as the 18 items that were on board their sinking sailboat.

Slide 25 explains to the students that of all the 18 items on their sinking boat, only 5 items washed up on shore on their island. And slide 26 explains to them that the 5 squares they chose earlier will be the five items that they will have to use on their island.

The students kind of understand at this point, but when slide 27 comes up, they fully understand what is going on. This is the point where the excitement level rises in classroom, and they really get into this lesson plan. I would give them about 3 minutes to see what 5 items they get, as well as they like to discuss with their other friends what their ‘funny’ choices are.

There's a worksheet where the students write how they will use their randomly selected 5 items. Next, on the bottom of the worksheet, students are allowed to choose any 5 items that they think are the most useful.

After this, if there's time, I made a Survival Typhoon PPT. The game has different survival trivia.
