In this project, students create the structure of their own country from the ground up. Once they have established background knowledge on government styles, economy styles, and various cultural traits, they can apply that knowledge by choosing the ones they feel would best suit their new country. The creation of this new country builds off the scenario from a previous project, all under the umbrella of a zombie apocalypse-themed unit. We start with analysis of population, transportation and movement as the infected zombies spread closer, then in another project (that you can conveniently find at my store as well) students needed to choose an area suitable for long term relocation and survival.
Once they have relocated, the natural next step is to create a new societal order by choosing whichever government economy and society elements they choose... as long as they can explain WHY!
