Desert Island Adventure
This is a common sociology and pyschology experiment that is fun and always lures conversation - even from the most shy of students! Usually referred to as "Desert Island," this idea was actually the basis of the hit ABC drama, "LOST."
Here's the storyline:
A plane crashes in the middle of the ocean, and twelve survivors are able to swim to the shore of an undiscovered desert island. Meanwhile, everyone else on Earth has "mysteriously died," leaving those ten people to carry on the future of the human race.
Unfortunately, there is only enough food for five people to survive for the rest of their lives. Choose five people to keep alive, leaving the rest for dead.
(Of course, it is the instructor's job to give the twelve survivors different names, genders, ages, jobs, skills, etc.)
