WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS ACTIVITY
♥ This was a great activity for the class to do! I was glad to have found it, the kids also constructed there own survival kit as well with what they thought should go in it. Making it a great project to incorporate art with!
♥ My students really enjoyed coming up with a survival kit and then sharing it with the class. I planned to get 2 or 3 students to share their ideas but they ALL wanted to share what was in their kit. It was a hit!
♥ Love how the kids will have to think outside the box!
