This beautifully illustrated curriculum guide on outdoor survival training is geared to grades 5–7, and can also be used for grades K–12. Kids who take this survival training are taught skills that increase their chances of survival if they find themselves in an emergency situation while boating, hunting, or hiking. The activities were designed for southeastern Alaska but can easily be adapted to other parts of Alaska and the north.
The student manual that accompanies this curriculum guide is temporarily out of stock, but is available as a PDF; see details below.
We help Alaska's students meet state content standards! The content standards (in PDF format) addressed by each lesson and activity are clearly identified. When you teach from these curriculum guides, you know right away which standards you are meeting.
What others say
"I've used your curriculum with students a number of times, and found the students loved the activities and had a terrific time learning important skills. I am again teaching a class on safety and skills in the outdoor with another group of public school students. This class is very popular among the students, with many more choosing this class than I there is room for. I guess I'll just have to offer it every year! Thanks for developing such a valuable curriculum."—Becky Germain, 5th and 6th classroom teacher, Anchorage

This student manual accompanies the instructor's Outdoor Survival Training manual. It has the same appealing illustrations as the teacher manual and is written at a sixth grade level. Students learn about signals, shelters, fire building, PFDs, food gathering, and positive mental attitude. Instructors are encouraged to give student manuals free to kids taking the survival class to read and share with family and friends.
