You and your companions have just survived a crash in a small plane. Both the pilot and co-pilot were killed in the crash. It is mid-January, and you are in Northern Canada. The daily temperature is 25 below zero, and the night time temperature is 40 below zero. There is snow on the ground, and the countryside is wooded with several creeks, criss-crossing the area. The nearest town is 20 miles away. You are all dressed in city clothes appropriate for a business meeting. Your group of survivors managed to salvage the following items:

A ball of steel wool
A small ax
A loaded .45-caliber pistol
Can of CrIsco shortening
Newspapers (one per person)
Cigarette lighter (without fluid)
Extra shirt and pants for each survivor
20 x 20 ft. piece of heavy-duty canvas
A sectional air map made of plastic
A compass
Family-size chocolate bars (one per person)

Rank the item in order of importants and include why you choose each item.

1. A loaded .45pistol so you could shoot up in the air and hopefuuly get someone to here it.
2. we think the ax would be next so we could get firewood and make a fire
3. The extra clothes would be next in our opinion so if you were cold you would be able to put them on to stay warmer.
4. Then the heavy canvas to make a sort of shelter.
5.We think the chocolate bars would be next because you need some food
6. The compas would be next so if you had any sense of which way to go you could stay on the right path.
7. The newspapers might be next so they could be used as tolilet paper
8. A ball of steel wool so we can try to make a fire with it.
9. the criso would be next so we can make a fire with it cause its flamable.
10. a sectional air map cause we can use it to collect to tsnow and then srink it
11. the cigarette lighter is last cause there is no use for it .
