A day has almost passed since we got washed up on this deserted island. There are one hundred other passengers, all under the age of 15, with no adults to supervise us. Josh and I have become leaders for no specific reason, but we are trying to do everything we can to survive. The first five things we’ve done so far are to find or build shelter, locate a water and food source, build a fire, gather useful materials, and signal for help. Although we haven’t been able to find any water or food source we’ve managed to build a shelter with the help of the older kids of the 100. We also started a fire and made a list of everything we had. Also, after discussing it with Josh, we’ve decided it was a good idea to split the kids into specific groups that do different tasks. We’ve assigned the 25 strongest kids to find or build shelter. 35 kids to locate a water or food source, 10 to build and take care of the fire, 20 to gather any useful materials, and 10 to make or signal for help. It got late fast as we did all of this which left us with no choice but to skip signaling for help. We had added large pieces of broken branches found by the beach to the fire as we needed it to heat all 102 of us. As the sun set, we huddled around the fire and fell asleep on the rough sand.

Found a pig wondering on the island as us on the island were doing our jobs and the things that we had to do just get the day over with and hoping someone would find us in the future, since we found a pig, I quickly told everyone quietly so that the pigs wouldn’t hear us or run away, I told them to grab their things so we can capture the pigs for a our meals and share it with the community.
Since we have been working very hard trying to make sure everyone is safe and secure on the island… some of the people were saying, to not capture the pig yet and some of us secretly follow it back to it’s “Home” cause since there’s one wondering around it might be lost or just finding some food.. If we can go to where it’s from it might be more than one on the island because it can’t just be one, on the whole island since we have been here. Some of the people didn’t agree with this and thought it was very stupid, lots of people were just very hungry and not thinking what will be the effect at the end. So the oldest kind told everyone to sit back and just relax.
He was gonna follow the pig and see where it leads, he doesn’t know how long they will be. After a long hike up the hill he found a group of pigs together….
He knew where they would be ran back to where all his friends were got a few of them that knew how to hunt and caught a few of the pigs for dinner and kept some other ones for other days.. Everyone was happy and glad that they thought out the idea before they just went for it.

While we’re following the pigs we find a large lake in the middle of the island. There are also fruit trees nearby. (Including coconut trees).
While we were taking care of our island, doing the things we needed to survive. Some things weren’t easy for us… As days go on we just hope something to happen, or people to find us. One morning everyone got up and just trying to get up and get things ready for a day.
They heard something in the bushes and thought it was gonna be an enemy that was gonna attack the kids. Then it was a big.. Some of them yelled but didn’t want the pig to notice that they were there. Some of them wanted to kill the pig’s right away. But you gotta be smart about it.
Some of the kids decided to break up in groups and then, secretly follow the pig. That’s what they did. They followed the pig for a while and the pigs brought them to a whole new location and that spot was something new that have never been seen before. That spot was filled with a whole bunch of useful materials that the kids on the islands could use. Full of bright colorful trees. With a lot of nice watery fruits. They also count coconuts. Once they found out about the area they quickly ran back and told the oldest person in the area. They decided to tell some of the kids to go back to that area to go and get the food. Bring back to the campers. They didn’t want to collect so much each day because they didn’t want the resources to run out
