Early Beginnings, Think for Yourself p.45
You see some fruit in a tree given the supplies in the nature around you how will you make a tool to get it down?
If I was in this position I would look around for a tree and pull off a huge limb. I would smack the fruit up in the tree with this stick and make it fall. If this didn’t work I would simply sharpen the stick on a sharp rock from the ocean and then spear the fruit.
You want to bring some water back to camp but you need to make a tool to carry it in. How will you make a tool to carry it and store it?
If I ever needed to do this I would use my clothes as a sponge and carry the water back where I needed it. If I had no clothes or this wouldn’t work I would use my stick to knock down a coconut then split it open with a rock. Then I would drink the milk and hollow it out and I would have two perfect buckets!
Brainstorm a list of short and long term needs and how you would get them using tools you made from scratch.
-I would make a bow for hunting
-I would make a teepee using sticks and grass
-I would make my shelter by the water and use my coconuts for containers
-I would easily make a bow fire starter because I know how to use one and make one
