Activities:

1. Learn to tie different knots
One skill that can come in handy in many survival situations is learning how to tie different knots. The web site, from a scout troup in England, not only includes clear directions, but also animated lines in different colors to demonstrate how to tie many special knots. It also describes situations in which to use the knots: www.mistral.co.uk/42brghtn/knots/42ktmenu.html

This web site has more about knots as well: www.2020site.org/knots
