Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book examines the science skills you would need to survive on an uninhabited island. It begins with a map showing where these islands are located in the world. The text then looks at the features of these islands and at how you might use these features to help you to survive if you were on an expedition in these regions. Aspects of survival are considered and each one is supported by a science activity which the readers can perform using everyday materials and equipment. For example, it shows you what to wear, how to find your way, stay safe and, if necessary, be rescued. There is an easy-to-follow activity on every other spread.
