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

Step 1: First Aid

now for this survival kit there isn't going to be a fancy selection its simply 4 items. band aids, alcohol swabs, cotton balls, and medical tape rolled up.

Step 2: Cutting

if you are going to survive you need something that can cut. blades can be used from defense to food preparation, since this is a small kit i used a razor blade with tape for a handle.

Step 3: Massages

if you have to abandon a car or something around that you should leave a note for possible searchers.

Step 4: Reapair/shelter

to survive you need your clothes and a shelter, once again the kit is tiny so there is 550 cord, sewing kit, nails,a little hot glue, and tape.

Step 5: Fire and Light

in order to keep warm you must have a fire. there is a candle so you don't have twist all the matches. the cotton is stuffed in a straw to prevent it from getting wet. and i was able to fit a small flashlight in the kit.

Step 6: Food and Water

in my kit i placed aluminum foil for boiling water or cooking, wire for snares, fishing kit, and the tin for cooking.

Step 7: Packing

i packed the sharp items taped to the top so they wouldn't poke things. then paper at the bottom followed by foil, alcohol swabs, bandaids, then everything else.

Step 8: Conclusion

to conclude this kit can come in handy wether you got stranded in the woods or simply forgot some things on a family camping trip. i hope you enjoyed please vote and follow me, thanks and good bye.

    Great idea putting cotton balls in a straw and melting the ends. Makes for a cheap water-proof solution in case an emergency fire is needed!

    I would agree it's just at the time I didn't have any on hand

    I would trade the tape for duct tape. It's stronger.
