Your challenge will
involve dividing into five “tribes” that will fight for Florida’s survival. Each team member will choose an area of
research. Once you are an “expert” in
your field, you will create game cards of information on your area of
environmental study. After completing this task, you will form new alliances so
that each new team has an expert in each area of study. Each “expert” will help the tribe in creating
a Survivor Florida game that will be used to
challenge the other tribes. Which expert
will you be?
