Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: What You'll Need

To make your tin, YOU have to take around a week and find around 5 large or 10 small things, that you need in a week. For example, let's say that you just ate an apple, and you have a piece of apple stuck in your teeth, and you were probably like, " dang I wish I had some dental floss. That is what you'll remember to pack.

Now in my example I have
-2 quarter
-2 elastics
-1 bag full of
-6 tums or rollaids
-2 acetaminophen
-2 night cold caps
-chap stick
-ear plugs wrapped in tin foil / for protection/
-dental floss
-nettle/ for improvised cutting
-And band aids.

This should allow you to help your headache, stable your stomach, help your lips, plug your ears, heal small to large wounds, cold caps for better sleeping and aid against colds, elastic to hold stuff together, an improvised cutter. Again this is instructions for how to make your own Altoids tin survival kit.

Step 2: Putting It Together.

Next is where you take every thing you want in your Altoids tin, and find a configuration that the items will fit. For example take two items and get those to fit together. And do that for all your items, next take two pairs of items, and get them to fit. Etc....

Step 3: That's It

That is how you can build your own Altoids tin survival kit, thank you guys for reading and see you next time
