Read and practice "The Five Knots Every Boy Should Know," The Dangerous Book for Boys, by Hal Iggulden, p 9, with backup from YouTube:
The Reef Knot or Square Knot
Figure Eight Knot
Sheet Bend Knot
- Clove Hitch Knot
- Read "A Kid's Wilderness Survival Primer" and discuss the "Recommended Minimum Survival Equipment for Kids"
- Explore the remainder of the "Survival for Kids" web site and do the survival simulator game if inclined
- Play "What Would You Do If...." with various situations.
- Read Improve Your Survival Skills (Usborne Superskills) by Lucy Smith
I hope to post more on Survival Skills for Kids next month as we work our way through them.
