Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Plastic Bag, Tin Foil, and Paper
The plastic bag is to keep matches in. You can also put the entire altoids tin into the bag if you have to swim or enter any water. The tin foil can be used to cook food. Paper can be used to light a fire, or write a note on.
Step 2: Pencil, Rubber Bands, and Paperclips
The pencil is to write on the paper. Rubber bands have as many uses as you can think of, and paperclips can be used as fish hooks. They can also be used to connect or hold up components of a fort.
Step 3: Gum and Matches
Gum can be used as a watertight seal on nearly anything. Matches are used to start a fire. If yo can, also bring a magnesium rod, as they always work to start a fire. (the matches are not shown in the pictures)
Step 4: Multi-tool, Compass, and Mirror
The multi-tool has infinite uses. The compass will help point you towards civilization. The mirror can be used to start a fire of to signal a passing plane or hikers.
Step 5: Done!
The matches and paper go inside of the plastic bag, and the rest of the stuff fits in anywhere in the altoids tin. The rubber bands should be placed around the outside of it to save space.
