COMPLETE SET: 3 curriculum units
Those questions, key to survival, can focus student attention on a highly motivating and dangerously overlooked fact: Geography skills can save you from the zombie apocalypse! Use students’ natural desire to survive zombie assaults to motivate study of a complete curriculum based on the National Geography Standards, and then to apply those skills in a series of scenarios based on surviving when the attacks come to your own neighborhood. Dead Reckon, a graphic novel (in digital format) that correlates with the curriculum, further motivates students by showing one student’s use of geography skills to overcome the challenges of a zombie-filled world. Developed by David Hunter for grades 5–8, the curriculum is recommended for grades 5–12.
