Cigarette lighter (without fluid)
Extra shirt and pants for each survivor

1st we would take the lighter and make sparks to catch the paper on fire. 2nd we would try to make a shelter from wood we would gather and the 20x20 piece of canvas. 3rd we would take the gun and take bullets and try to hunt some food (animals). 4th we would take the can of crisco and put it on our body in layers to keep our body heat in. 5th we would take the ax and try to get more wood for the fire and shelter. 6th we would take the compass and map and try to navigate our way to the town. 7th on our way while navigating we would take half of each of our candy bars so we can save some for later just in case we get hungry again. 8th we would use the extra close for wormth at night.

first out of all the options i pick the small axe I picked that so I can cut wood for a fire. Next i would pick a ball of stell wool to light the fires. My i would pick the .45 caliber pistol to shoot food. I would pick the cholate bar to eat so we have energy. I also pick a compass so i can find my way. the 20*20 canvas so we can stay warm. the air map so i can get a lay of the land. we would usethe cloths so we have extra cloths. We would use the cigarett ligther to make sparks for the fire.The news paper would be used as kindling.The can of cristo shortning would be used as a fire starter.
