I thoroughly appreciated the premise of the original activity "Hawaiian Plane Crash" but found it slightly outdated for my use. This activity is a slight modification of the original with an addition of a PowerPoint to better illustrate the story.
Initiate the PowerPoint presentation and narrate the story.
On the example slide (Slide 8), try to illicit the answers from the students.
Hand out the worksheet. This activity can be for individuals, pairs or teams.
Instruct students to first discuss WHAT items to take with them before writing WHY they should take them.
It is recommended that dictionaries be provided to the students.
Award any student who can come up with any good reason for taking the Bowling Ball with them.
