This crossword puzzle covers 10 of the most common and useful types of knots, with knot tying as the principle activity of learning the knots and successfully completing the puzzle. The class has a duration of approximately 80 minutes due to the knot tying time required. Additional information, videos, or scenarios of how or where knots are used, is presented prior to the class activity.
The purpose of the activity is to learn the names of the knots and the purpose of the knots. This would be considered an introductory activity to topics that include survival, bush crafting, boating, aboriginal basket and fishnet making, in addition to an introduction to Neolithic skills and or Colonial weaving guilds. It could also be an introductory activity to looms, macramé, and paracord crafts.
