Product Description

In this Dewey Decimal activity, students select from 25 zombie apocalypse scenarios and use symbols from Dewey sections to survive the wilderness, disease, hunger, and brain-thirsty zombies! It's a fun, zombie-fied way to introduce or review Dewey!

Companion product: After the Zombie Apocalypse: A Dewey Decimal Story

This role-playing game can be used before or after teaching the Dewey Decimal System. It does not teach Dewey itself and should not be used in isolation without teaching Dewey in a recent or upcoming lesson. During the game, students will apply Dewey groupings to various survival scenarios.

The Zombie Dice Game includes:

  • 33-slide PowerPoint game (editable)
  • complete directions
  • Dewey Categories sheet (needed to play game, editable)
  • Tool Categories sheet (needed to play game, editable)
  • list of specific Dewey numbers for items listed on the Categories sheets (editable)

About the PowerPoint Game:

  • students select from 25 scenarios in five categories
  • each scenario includes a full-color photo
  • "spacer" slide gives students an opportunity to share their solutions
  • Don't worry! The zombie scenarios do not include violence or gore. They are survival scenarios that require ingenuity and problem-solving skills.

About the Categories sheets:

  • Each of the “Tool” categories represents a “hundreds section” in Dewey Decimal classification. For example, “Tool Category #5” contains items that symbolize topics in the 500s section of the library. “Tool Category #11” contains symbols from the 100s section (since students cannot roll a 1 with two dice).
  • Use the Tool Categories sheet if you have not yet taught Dewey.
  • Use the Dewey Categories sheet if you recently taught Dewey.
  • No traditional weapons (guns, knives, etc.) are included in the tool categories, although rocks are included in the 500s toolkit.
