1 Survival Needs

2 Identify items that are absolutely necessary for human survival.

3 The survival of any organism requires the maintenance of a certain level of activity within its cells. To do so requires access to essential [important; necessary] resources that are determined in part by the environment in which the organism lives.

4 No matter what the environment may be like, certain resources are needed to meet the basic needs of the human organism.

5 Because of your excellent qualifications, you have been chosen to go on a 14-day scientific expedition to explore a remote area of planet Earth. Prior to this expedition, the area has never been visited by humans.

6 You will be going to one of the following environments: Equatorial Desert

7 You will be going to one of the following environments: Polar Ice Cap

8 You will be going to one of the following environments: Equatorial Jungle

9 You will be going to one of the following environments: Mountain Forest

10 Because of the nature of your expedition, no motorized vehicles can be used. You will be hiking about 10 miles a day, carrying all of your supplies with you.

11 1. List any essential resources that you can assume will be supplied by the natural environment. 2. Prepare a list of items that would have to be brought with you on your expedition. 3. Underline those items that you would need no matter what environment you were in. HINT: Focus your attention on the major items necessary for survival in your area- not vacation.

12 You can not go on this dangerous adventure alone so you must convince others to go with you. Create an attractive and colorful mini- travel poster to entice other adventurers. You must let others know where they are going and what they should pack.
