Island 4 Day 3

Page history last edited by Kelsie =] 11 years, 1 month ago

 

You have had some issues with food. First, some of the fruit you picked were either not ripe or poisonous. Three members have gotten seriously sick with diarrhea and dehydration. Second, some of your members have developed allergies to something. But hey, good news, you are the only island to have found the remains of your crashed plane.

 

 

Section [06]

 

 

You’re in luck because one of your members thinks he/she knows how to identify which fruit (most likely berries) is poisonous. Research all about poisonous berries and post a picture. You don’t want to forget, which one it is.

 

List possible complications of allergies/food poisoning:

 

 

Food Allergy/Posioning causes gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and, stomach cramps. In more rare allergic reactions, it can cause nerve damage.

*Poisonous berries like these are called pokeweed berries. Their bright color warns animals not to eat them.

 

 

 

This picture is an example of some of the berries that have been getting the people on our island sick.  We have to find a way to stop this immediately and find a new source of nutrition.

List allergy symptoms your members have:

  • stomach cramps
  • vomiting
  • shortness of breathe
  • low blood sugar 

 

 

Possible causes of allergies:

Always get that person away from the plant and treat immediatley! 

 

 

 

 

Write a plan of action for how to deal with the food poisoning/allergies using the resources you have (pre-plane items):

 

We have salvaged a first-aid kit, which contains anti-diarreah medication, aspirin, laxatives, and antacid (for stomach aches). Because some of our members have low blood sugar levels, we are going find fruits , and allow them to replensh their blood sugar. Using our medications, we can cure the ailments of our people, but we need to be more careful, so as to conserve our supplies.

 

High Blood Sugar - Give them one serving of cactus fruit, which is known to lower blood sugar

 

Low Blood Sugar- Fruits found on island with high sugar content, fruits we know are safe. Through trial and error, we know which fruits make us sick and which don't.

 

Diarreah- Use cure from First-Aid Kit

 

Stomach Aches - Pills from Kit

 

Stomach Cramps - Allow the members to be inactive for a period of time.  Also, if we have a box of tum's advil in our first aid kit we could use that to stop the cramps.

 

Shortness of Breath - Use the emergency Asthma inhaler found in the First-Aid kit.

  

 

Section [09]

 

 

You are in luck. You have found the remains of the crashed plane in the desert. There is metal debris and a few items that are usable. Pick three from the plane bag.

 

-2 Flotation Seats

-Empty suitcase

-Carry-on w/ small hygiene kit & soiled clothes

     Includes shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, razor, tooth brush and paste"

1)    

 

 

 

 

How will these three items help you in general? With the food poisoning/allergies?

 

In General:

Lotion would help with burns

Shaving cream- self defense/ hunting/ cleaning dirty hands

Toothpaste- clean wounds, bugbites, burns, AS FOOD

Razor- scale a fish

Plane debris- Used for shelter!!, also for cooking (pots, etc.)

Shampoo-cleansing and removing cuts, dirt, and oils

Conditioner- used to prevent rust on metal tools (including plane debris)

Seat Cushions- used for relaxation, injured people (stretcher)

 

Poisoning/ Allergies:

Lotion-skin allergies/ rashes

 

 

  

What debris can you use from the plane? How will you use it?

 

The debris we can use from the plane would include scrap metal from the plane itself, cords (from the control panel on the front of the plane), pullout trays, and the arm rests.

 

This is how we will use our findings:

Metal- Used to build a hut or small shelter to protect people from the elements (sun, rain, etc.). This metal can be used to make/ as hunting tools as well as small rafts to sail farther from the shore to fish.

 

Cords-Used in the same manner as palm fronds would be used (weaved together to make netting, etc.) Also can be used to capture boars/ other animals for hunting (since it is very durable).

 

Pullout Trays- Used as chopping blocks for our meat, tools for hunting animals. Can also be used as a material to make a small boat (in order to float farther from shore to fish).

 

Arm Rests- Used as hunting tools (club boars). If necessary, can be used to build a small raft.

 

Seat Cushion- Used as pillows or cushions for injured people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a picture of my arm after it was cut while I was walking through the extreme forest terrian. 

 

 

 

Section [04]

 

 

Something terrible happened to one of the members exploring the plane. Pick one out of the accident bag.

[Name of Member]

Jack Howell

 

[illustration of condition]

Jack was walking through the forrest, while he tripped on a stump. When he was falling down his arm scrapped a a rigid part of a branch. This gash was white originally but as the second went on the blood began to trickle down his arm. The blood was quick, but sparse.

List possible dangers/complications of condition:

 

There could possibly be an infection to occur within the wound. The wound could let to such a bad infection that it could cause a life threatning disease or illness.

 

Source:

[Resources/tools you will use]

 

I would use the First Aid Kit that has antibacterial wipes to differ from the bleeding and use gauze. Then used the I use a lot of iontments and creams on the wound to speed up the process of healing.

 

 

 

 

[Plan of Action]

We will use the first aid kit, and then we'll wash the blankets and rip them up. Then we would tie them around the wound to stop the bleeding. (Pressure on the wound stops the bleeding). After, we'll try and clean the wound so that person wouldn't get infected.  We could also put the arm in salt water which could help the healing and kill any possible infections.

I finished the plan of action, and we've got our picures up. Great job guys!

Mrs. L, the plan of action was a collaboration between everyone but we all submitted our work on Harsha's computer.

Kelsie =] said

Guys, do not forget to comment on the island every night. Mrs. L said we're doing a great job and we need to keep it up! =]

Harsha Indian said

at 11:52 am on Oct 31, 2008

We've added in-depth cures and symptoms, and have pretty good cures. (we all did it). Mrs. L said we're winning (with island 3)!

Harsha Indian said

at 11:52 am on Oct 31, 2008

Yeah keep it up, we're winning so far..

Suzie, Olivia and Adam we did so well today now a we need to figure out is how to incorporate the reminiscence of the plane crash in our shelter and in the success of our island

J. Wright said

at 3:06 pm on Oct 31, 2008

So, other sections need to remain with our section, 4, as well as other sections. Please keep others involved. Thanks.

Kelsie =] said

Nice job everyone, make sure that you remember to comment on the wiki about any suggestions or improvements that could be made. We all have to work together to succeed.

DeAnna said

at 12:14 pm on Nov 1, 2008

This is looking good. Poor jack....

DeAnna said

at 2:47 pm on Nov 2, 2008

Do we have Pain medication? Or something we could use if someone got stung by a jellyfish? Or ate a jellyfish? (Don't ask me how you would manage that one...)

Suzie said

at 3:45 pm on Nov 2, 2008

Section 09, the link that was supposed to be used to allow people to look at our plane debris usage isn't working...I believe Olivia drew it and if you could try to put it on the wiki again that would be great. Thanks! For Section 09 I will list the possible ways we could use the plane debris, and if anyone wants to add anything, you are more than welcome.

Kelsie =] said

at 6:42 pm on Nov 2, 2008

Suzie, excellent job on the usage for the plane debris! They were all very good and very descriptive.
Section 4, you need to go back and site your sources asap
Olivia, you put the link to your picture up instead of the actual picture. You'll just have to re-upload it to the wiki again and it'll be fine.
Everyone, we have to continue to work together as a whole. We're currently in the lead.
If you have any questions or need to tell me something, just email it to me.

-----------------------------
We have the first-aid kit supplies, which contains basic antiseptics (disinfecting wipes, pain killers...)

Should we add more pictures for our class work seeing only how we have one?

Mac said

at 7:24 pm on Nov 2, 2008

great job on the picture section 9

Kelsie =] said

at 7:40 pm on Nov 2, 2008

Well, you and DeAnna need to decide how to redo the picture of the shelter other than that, we're good with pictures. (We need to have only one bedroom and the extra room can be for something else)

Suzie said

at 9:36 pm on Nov 2, 2008

I really like the picture of Jack's injury, by the way. Great job!

Harsha Indian said

at 12:19 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Agreed, good picture

J. Wright said

at 3:08 pm on Nov 3, 2008

I appreciate whomever edited the section that I contributed to, and added sourced because i was genuinely confused on what we should add! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

aclarkson said

at 3:15 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Do I need to make a map or anything for our beach or land? I'm not sure if someone else has already made one or not.

Kelsie =] said

at 3:35 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Anna, the new map is already being drawn. I know you wanted to do some artwork so if we need a picture for the next island day, you can do it.

Kelsie =] said

at 3:38 pm on Nov 3, 2008

Okay guys, everything for this day is complete and all our requirements are fulfilled. If you have any information to add, feel free.
Nice job working together everyone! Let's keep it up! =]

Mac said

at 7:48 pm on Nov 3, 2008

So after me and DeAnna add the map we will be done with this day i think. DeAnna has the map otherwise i would add it right now

dcurrie said

at 10:25 pm on Nov 3, 2008

We still need to figure out how to incorporate the plane crash debris into a shelter and then have it drawn out

Kelsie =] said

at 11:31 pm on Nov 3, 2008

I don't think a drawing is required, but if someone wants to draw one to contribute a drawing to the wiki they can.

aclarkson said

at 12:31 pm on Nov 4, 2008

okay sounds good kelsie thanks

Kelsie =] said

at 6:17 pm on Nov 4, 2008

Mimi, do you have any comments on how our island is doing so far?

DeAnna said

at 10:22 pm on Nov 4, 2008

Do we know how much plane debris there is? Can we fit it into our cave? What kind of debris?

Mimi said

at 10:58 am on Nov 12, 2008

Anna I really like the picture of the injury. It looks soooo real.

Mimi said

at 11:02 am on Nov 12, 2008

I also think that we had a very good plan of action to deal with Jack's wound.

aclarkson said

at 11:22 am on Nov 12, 2008

Make sure to scroll over to the right in order to see the details on Jack's arm.

DeAnna said

at 12:48 pm on Nov 12, 2008

Ok Anna. It's a good drawing.

jhowell said

at 9:40 pm on Nov 12, 2008

Good job adding that 2nd picture! For the bibliography sources, do we need to just list the URL or do we need the MLA format (like we had to do for last years GI papers)?

Kelsie =] said

at 9:57 pm on Nov 12, 2008

It needs to be in the MLA format. Nice job commenting Jack!

J. Wright said

at 10:01 pm on Nov 12, 2008

Our pictures look really great! Good job everyone

Mac said

at 12:32 pm on Nov 13, 2008

we need to cite this page so whoever found the picture of the plane crash I need the website for it

Adam said

at 3:44 pm on Nov 13, 2008

how about using plane debris as cooking instruments?

DeAnna said

at 11:36 am on Nov 14, 2008

That's a good idea.

ctreischmann said

at 3:46 pm on Nov 14, 2008

how would we sterilize though? thats a good idea but plane debris around the food? we would have to think about that one
