14 Dream Vacation Disaster You are on a cruise sailing from Miami, Florida to the Isla de la Juventud in the Caribbean Sea. On the second night out at sea, there is a hurricane. Your cruise ship runs aground on an uninhabited island in the middle of the ocean. You and a few other passengers have washed up on shore, alert and unharmed. The captain, the crew, most of the other passengers, and all the lifeboats have disappeared! The wreck has destroyed almost everything in the ship. You are dressed only in your pajamas and it is hot! To make matters worse, you are in the Bermuda Triangle. Your cell phone and all other electronic devices do not work in this paranormal place. You cannot see any other ships or islands near you. Now, in groups for safety, you leave the shipwreck and search for debris along the shoreline. Each one of you finds an object washed up on the shore from the ship. Look in your group’s envelope; this is what you have found along the shoreline. You and your group collect the items that you have found and start walking back to the designated meeting place. You are discussing what you have found and how these items can help you. As your group reconvenes you realize the seriousness of the situation. You know that you must all work together to formulate a plan for survival on a deserted island. Create a survival plan using the items that you have found washed up along the shore. What items did you find? How will you use those items? Think about the part of the world where you are stranded. What local resources will help aid in your survival?
