Ok, I know that the title of this blog may sound strange (yes, I would also agree), but let me explain. This week, we are going to pretend that all of us have volunteered to be the first people to colonize the planet Mars. Water has been found and scientist have been cultivating the planet so that it can sustain life. The reality is that you're a long way from home....a really long way....(it would make the separation from say the historical "Old World" and "New World" look like a simple walk across the street!!).
So, as you prepare for your trip to the Red Planet, we have to decide on a few things....
This Week's Blog Questions:
You can carry only three things with you (due to strict weight limitations)... what would you take?
Think about the make up of your class. Someone has to be in charge...who? What type of government are you going to put into place? What are some of the rules that you would establish that would be non-negotiable? What do you do with those that refuse to obey the rules?
PS> Even though this is somewhat of a "fun" blog topic this week, the answers to the above questions aren't as easy to answer as one may think. The decisions that you make will have MAJOR implications and may determine if you survive or not! Give your responses some thought.
