Survival plan: In a sharing and knowledge circle, the students discuss the importance of Netukulimk and how to live in harmony with the environment. Students are then invited to create a survival plan of what they would need to survive. They can only take from the earth and land and must consider factors like season, weather and local habitat and ecosystem.

We strongly encourage educators to take their students outside during this activity.
