This week’s elearning challenge was to create a low-tech course design that could be used without any power or electronic devices. So, I pulled out my sharpie and a few sheets of paper to create this Survivorman-themed lesson (or perhaps on-site survival aid if you will).
Having logged in far too many hours watching Les Stroud’s Survivorman show, I had plenty of “useful” tips to share, starting with ways to build a fire:
And we all know how crucial it is to stay hydrated, especially in a survival situation, so here are some ways (some more appetizing than others) to get water:

Lastly, here is a quick list of possible food sources. It’s pretty much impossible to come up with an exhaustive list, and each situation will be completely different, but here’s a quick list to get you thinking about some possibilities:
So, I hope you enjoyed this very hurried, rough version. Hopefully you’ll never need to use this information in real life, but if you do, I’d like to think it might save your life.
