Island in Lhaviyani Atoll (Photo credit: Edgar Barany)

In the novel Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, a bunch of boys from an all-boys school crash-landed on an deserted island.  All the adults died during the crash and the boys were left to fend for themselves.  The boys ended up formed two groups, one evil and bent on controlling everyone on the island while the other group was more “more civilized”. As the story went on the two groups fought with each other and several boys ended up getting murdered by the group of wild boys.

In the television show Lost, a group of people landed on an island and lots of crazy things happened.  Polar bears showed up, a group on scientists who were doing experiments and so many more crazy things. We can’t forget Castaway, the story of a man who was the sole survivor on a deserted island who fought to find a way to return home to the woman he loved. This kind of story never gets old; you just have to find a new way to tell this kind of story.

Write a story about going on a school trip oversees and your plane crash landing on an island.  What kind of island is it?
