Decision Making in a Bomb ShelterYour mission, should you choose to accept it....The students' task here is no less than the survival of the human species. Given a cast of characters, a list of supplies, survival mechanics and a stringent code for survival, students must form a census on who is elected to survive, why, and how.

The exercise can be extended or expanded for further use, but even such a short activity can effectively demonstrate creative thinking.
