Part of the four-volume Surviving Outdoor Adventures series, this book is a curriculum for training young people to be safe in the outdoors and near cold water. Included are units on Hypothermia, PFDs, and Cold Water Survival.
The complete curriculum includes worksheets, handouts, stories, and templates, and is based on Alaska content standards. Shrinkwrapped looseleaf pages are suitable for a 3-ring binder, and each book comes with a free CD containing a PDF of that volume.
The Surviving Outdoor Adventures series provides all the materials needed to give K–12 kids lifelong good habits in outdoor safety. The materials can be used to teach one lesson, a semester, or a yearlong program. Written by Alaska Marine Safety Education Association staff in cooperation with educators from Alaska and nationwide, this series presents in-depth background for teachers.
We help Alaska's students meet state content standards! The content standards addressed by each lesson and activity are clearly identified in the text. When you teach from these curriculum guides, you know right away which standards you are meeting.
Alaska Marine Safety Education Association provides continuing assistance for outdoor safety teachers. Books, videos, and teaching kits are available for loan, and participants in AMSEA teacher workshops can borrow PFDs, immersion suits, and other safety gear.
