End of the World Reflections

Group Work: Arthur Clarke’s “The Star”

 

Scientists have just discovered that a giant meteor is going to hit Earth and wipe us out.

Imagine you are on a team chosen to select items for a vault built for Earth. You must decide what should be included in it to be possibly found in the future by other living and intelligent creatures. You may include only 6 items, however, because many other teams are representing other cultures across the world and there is limited space. You must assume that any future cultures finding your vault will not speak the language or have the same technologies. Work creatively to solve this potential dilemma.

A)    Your group must come to a consensus on what item you will include.

B)     Explain how this item is important. How does it represent humanity, who we are, and/or our accomplishments?
