I teach to many ESL students. They have a tendency to revert to their first language throughout the semester. By starting the semester with this SILENT activity students are able to see that they don’t need a language to fall back on they have so many other ways.
This project takes one entire class. Students work together to save themselves from zombies! This is great for my speech class as students are able to better develop their nonverbal skills.
The project DOES require some set up (though how much depends on you!). I am able to use products I find around my school (cups, rubber bands, string, etc). Be sure you have gathered everything before you plan to use the lesson.
That being said, many teachers find this useful in ANY class as they work on critical thinking and their teamwork skills. It can be used from any class ranging from 45 to 90 minutes.
