Questions to Ask Your Chart Your Own Course: Survival Edition Camper – Tuesday

If you’re wondering what your camper has been up to this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

  1. This week is about charting our own course and learning different strategies of survival. Earlier this week we role-played a scenario in which we crash-landed a plane in the Alaskan wilderness. What are 5 things we learned that people need to survive the wilderness?  If you could have 2 people to be stranded in the wilderness with, who would they be? 
  2. On Tuesday we “foraged” for berries and edible seeds. What types of berries and seeds did we “forage” for?  What strategies did we come up with to ration our food? 
  3. Another survival skill that we’ve worked on this week was making our own tools. What characteristics make the perfect whittling stick?  What tools would you whittle to survive in the wilderness?  How would you use those tools to help you in the wilderness?
