Tidying up my inbox I came across a link to this home-schooling blog on Nim's Island activities:
..." on top of watching our Prof H videos that go with the Nim classes we'll be:
Open a coconut (with a hammer instead of Jack's Machette), and after eating the meat use the shell for a bowl

Record the coming and going of the tide
Check their weather stations daily...
To read the rest go to:
