Island 2 Day 2

Page history last edited by ewroten 11 years, 2 months ago

Island 2 Day 2

 

 

It was a challenge to get work done over the weekend, wasn’t it? Well, each member needs an assigned role. You have already gathered your supplies, explored the island, and created a map. Now you need to make plans for how to survive.

 

 

Section [06] Members

 

 

Look at the member page again, and add a third column to the member table that will be called “roles.” You should decide based on survival IQ and quality of contributions who will do what. You must also nominate and elect a leader. But first, write job descriptions for each role. Figure out how you will do this so it is fair for the rest of the sections. Remember, every member must still contribute to the wiki in order to get a grade.

 

 

Some of the roles you NEED to consider are:  

  • Leader (one per island): the leader will not only have the final say, but he or she will also make sure every member is doing their part and contributing to their project. A leader’s main job will be to leave comments for the other groups. [Other tasks?] (emergencies
  • Hunter gatherers: [Are responsible for aquiring food and water ] (They should build a stockpile incase of drought)
  • Builders/maintainers of shelters: [They decide who lives where people will live and how the houses will be] (Should take into account all weather and possible invasions)
  • Water and firewood gatherers: [Be responsible for gathering wood and coordinating with hunter gatherers to find water] (Be sure that there is enough wood to last a long)
  • Defense Leader should be in charge of attacking other inhabitants and should help defend the village incase of attack.  He should also help flag down planes/rescuers.  Incase of attack he should direct people as well as prepare a potential counter attack

 

 

Last tip: it would be useful if the members of the same section are in a similar role, that way you can complete a task together. The leader can be from any section and contribute to their particular group as he or she wishes.

 

 

Section [09] Members

 

 

First, do you approve of the leader nominated and chosen by the previous group?

 

If not, nominate a new leader:

 

 

You now have been assigned roles, but for today, you are also the plan builders. You must come up with a plan of action for the following situations:

Medical emergency: [you must specify what is in your first aid kit on Day 1]

For most medical emergencies on the island, our first aid kit will be used. If someone is infected from a cut we will use the gause and antiseptic. We have numerous medications for bites ex bug or snake.  For pain and aches we have Ibuprofin and Aspirin.  For broken legs we will make a brace with wood found in the forest.  If the others attack we have materials in the medical kit to adress our injuries that they may inflict.

 

Hunting/Gathering Techniques:

 

Make weapons with the resources we have on the island for hunting animals.  People need to be responsible for getting water in the river to drink and cook with.  We could use the lighter/ matches to make fire and cook.  People also need to be responsible for getting food from the forest from trees and bushes. 

 

Possible Mutiny:

Any members of the island that attempt to overthrow the leader or the entire tribe will be put to death or sent into the mountains to live.  Mutiny will not be tolerated for any reason.  Anyone who makes an attempt to dismantle the leader will be hung from a palm tree by rope.  If it is a minor attempt to overthrow the leader than the person will be sent into the mountains for a week or more until they do not have any want to cause a mutiny.

 

 

Attempts to get rescued:

There are numerous ways we could be rescued and 3 of our 6 tools play a key role in getting us rescued. We could use the mirror to reflect sunlight on people to get their attention. We could use the matches/lighter to start a fire, once we have a fire going, attention would be drawn from the smoke. To get even more attention, we could use the rope to construct figures on trees.

 

 

 

Tip:  Include how you will use the six tools and your island’s natural resources (as shown in the introduction page) to solve these problems.

 

 

 

 

Section [04] Members

 

 

First, do you approve of the leader nominated and chosen by the previous group?

 

If not, nominate a new leader:

We do not approve of the current leader, the person we would like in place of him would be Stephanie Hurruza. 

 

You now have been assigned roles, but for today, you are contributing to plans surrounding shelter.

 

  • Decide where your shelter will be built (based on the map created by your group; consider how long it takes to get to places and also what kind of problems you might encounter from your island).
  • Create a visual model of what your shelter/s looks like.

 

       For our shelters we will utilize our natural reasources.  First, we will sharpen rocks from the stream using other rocks and tying them to sticks to make pic axes.  Then we will use rope and the pic axes to cut down the palm trees.  The leaves from the palm trees will be stuck together using silt from the river to make roofs for the shelter.  The trunks of the palm trees will act as supports for the mud walls.  The huts will be about five feet tall with a four feet tall entrance.  The whole structure will be seven feet tall.  The huts will be cone shaped.  A separate hut with the hole at the top will be set aside for cooking, however large roasts will be held outside.  The huts are primarily for bad weather conditions and for sleeping.  They can’t really protect against the wild boars.  There will be multiple shelters.  Each hut will hold four people and we will build a totaly of three huts. We have decided to locate our village on the north end of the island, away from the other inhabitants, who live in the south, but still near the beach and ocean, and about a 5 minute walk to the fresh water stream and forest.

 

Shelter:

 

 

 

This is a demonstration of how we will make one of our tools the ax.

Sorry I'm changing this so late, I was hoping for more people to vote on a leader, but for those that did vote, we decided that Arun as leader, so I will just leave him as leader on the member's list.

I havent voted yet and i think that i would be a good leader because my IQ is high which it says the leader should have a very high IQ.

Hannah Akre said

at 1:58 pm on Oct 31, 2008

i havent voted yet either. i dont think you can hold us responsible for not voting by friday when we didnt have and island day in class. i vote Zach.

jessie said

Ahmun Zafar said

Hannah...Mrs. Leschhorn said that we have to keep up with the wiki during the week.

ewroten said

at 2:59 pm on Oct 31, 2008

arun i guess he is good

shruza said

at 3:06 pm on Oct 31, 2008

hey guys, Mrs. Leschhorn said that we have to be polite and we can't whine in our comments on the wiki. be mindful of that because it could be keeping us from being the top island.
We need to choose a leader too because that is keeping us down too.
This is all what Mrs. L said.

Brigitte Leschhorn said

One more reminder: all of you are doing really well in working this out politely, but you need to make sure you watch your tone so that it sounds professional. It is also important that your writing convey professionalism as well. Remember, you want to be clear and diplomatic, and the best way to do that is with good grammar and complete sentences. Please and thank you doesn't hurt either.

THE FINAL TALLY IS 6 for Arun and 4 for Zach.....ARUN IS LEADER

kwerner said

at 12:21 pm on Nov 3, 2008

annie votes for arun

shruza said

at 12:21 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Personally, I think that using all caps when you type something makes it come across a little rude and abrupt, it seems like you are yelling. Let's try to minimize the use of all caps as much as possible.

kwerner said

at 12:24 pm on Nov 3, 2008

altho she didn't post it

kwerner said

at 12:27 pm on Nov 3, 2008

well i wanted to clarify that arun is the leader...according to the votes so there was no confusion im sorr if that upset u

shruza said

at 12:28 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Oh, it didn't upset me, but Mrs. L said that we shouldn't use caps.

kwerner said

at 12:30 pm on Nov 3, 2008

This is Arun: The leader should have qualities of responsibility that will make sure that people will get their work done. No offense to Zach, but through experience, I wouldn't consider Zach responsible.

kwerner said

at 12:33 pm on Nov 3, 2008

welll.........after an official recount the tally is 6-6

kwerner said

at 12:35 pm on Nov 3, 2008

oh, those who support Erin support arun, becuase she supports him, so that propells the tally to 7-6 arun

zach gates said

at 1:22 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Arun why would you not consider me responsible? what experiences have you had that make me not responsible?

shruza said

at 2:45 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Hey guys, just because Erin is for Arun, that does not mean that everyone who supports her, supports Arun. Also, there are only 12 people on our island so it is impossible for it to have been tied 6 to 6. I voted for Erin, and because it is now between Arun and Zach, I am changing my vote to Zach.

ewroten said

at 2:52 pm on Nov 3, 2008

i vote zach

ewroten said

at 2:53 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Be polite and do not say anything you would not say in front of Miiss L. We are a group stuck on a island remember we have to stick together

ewroten said

at 2:54 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Plus the wiki is looking great, the pictures look awesome so Good Job

Erin said

at 2:55 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Even though we have been having many disputes as a group, remember it is important that we continue to work as a team and not say anything to each other that we wouldn't say to Miss Leschhorn directly.

nencarnacion said

at 2:56 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Considering all of the posts up to this point, Nick, Kevin, Arun, Erin, and Annie voted for Arun, and Stephanie, Chris, Zach, Hannah, Jessie, Ahmun, and Edward voted for Zach. That is 5 votes for Arun and 7 votes for Zach. Zach is the leader and I will change it on the Island 2 members part of the wiki now.

nencarnacion said

at 2:58 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Thank you everybody for voting. Also, Arun, I'm changing you to a Shelter Builder, ok.

nencarnacion said

Thank you everybody for voting. Also, Arun, I'm changing you to a Shelter Builder, ok.

Arun said

at 5:37 pm on Nov 3, 2008

I do not think i should be a shelter builder. i am okay with Zach being a leader if it gets people off this subject; if he shows to not be a responsible person to make sure that everyone gets things done, someone needs to step in and do it for him. And Zach, your reputation for academics is not the highest in our grade.

ewroten said

at 8:37 pm on Nov 3, 2008

This project is not suppose to bring be a way to insult people, we need to be polite Miss L. has already pointed out that we are loosing points by do such, so please remember to be polite and try not to argue or start conflicts

kwerner said

at 10:58 pm on Nov 3, 2008

well, with the votes counted then i guess Zach is the leader, although I don't think Arun should be a shelter builder either.

shruza said

at 10:24 am on Nov 4, 2008

we just switched Arun's job with Zach's job because we didn't know what other jobs there are

zach gates said

at 8:39 pm on Nov 4, 2008

Arun there are only four jobs available for you. You can either be a hunter/gatherer, a shelter builder, a water/firewood gatherer, or you can be the defense leader since Chris is the survival expert and not technically the defense leader. Which job do you think would be best for you, please make this decision quickly because we have other work to do. Thank you.

ewroten said

at 8:58 pm on Nov 4, 2008

Good we have things worked out now we can move on to other things

shruza said

at 10:37 pm on Nov 4, 2008

Mrs. l said that the specific jobs should go to certain groups so that when a certain job has a task, they can do it together

zach gates said

at 1:07 pm on Nov 5, 2008

alright well than Arun will stay as a shelter builder because group 6 is all shelter builders except chris.

jessie said

at 3:41 pm on Nov 13, 2008

The shelter picture looks really good and artistic!

ewroten said

at 3:08 pm on Nov 14, 2008

Even though we had disputes this looks very nice and I think we are still sticking together.
