Survival Challenge 101
You are in southern New Mexico driving (road trip, anyone? :)) to the Grand Canyon in Arizona on a family vacation when suddenly the car breaks down. Unfortunately all GPS, cell phone, and other electronic batteries are dead, so you’ll have to work together to survive. Over the next few days, you will need to decide with your “family” about how you will get back to civilization.
First mission: Know the southern New Mexico terrain, wildlife and weather. (Yes, ironically, you are able to research on the Internet in class and at home to help you attain the knowledge that will help you survive. ;)) Here are some resources to get you started:
Black Range Mountains Biome Information
Southern New Mexico Temperatures in September
Hillsboro, New Mexico — Historical, Multicultural Town
Arrey, New Mexico — Ghost Town
San Antonio, New Mexico — Tourist Destination Town
Second mission: Decide your list of Top Ten survival tools that would be ideal to have with you during this survival adventure. The list of possible survival tools will be given in class.
