A forensics team has landed on the island depicted in the book LORD OF THE FLIES by William Golding just following the book's ending. The team will formulate an hypothesis concerning the events on the island. Their goal is to produce a report which will be presented to an investigative committee (the remaining students in the classroom). They will be prepared to present their hypothesis and present evidence which proves or disproves it.


- The discovery of the surviving boys from an English boarding school who crashed on a deserted island has rocked the news world.  The probability that some or all of the survivors may have been responsible for the deaths and / or injury of their peers is even more disturbing. 

- Your team of investigators has been called in to examine the events on the island via the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding.  You will be assigned one subject who was present on the island during the events covered in the book.  You must formulate an hypothesis about your boy and determine its truth.
