Students watch a short film, "Santa Cruz del Islote" by Luke Lorentzen, about a very small, peaceful, island off the coast of Columbia, South America, where life is changing due to diminishing fish stocks and shifting resources. In this lesson, students experience life on this unique island through the eyes of a fisherman and a young schoolboy. Students explore the challenges of living in their own communities and consider personal responses to the inevitability of change. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
