This PBL project is a labor of love! Jumping on the zombie bandwagon myself and a co-teacher created this project as a way to try and get students to be interested in World Geography and responsible for their own learning.
The project is designed to be a group project for the study of South America but can be easily modified for any continent or area of your choosing. Students are required to find a safe place for themselves and their group to survive the zombie apocalypse using the 5 themes of geography research to locations of their choosing in the assigned area. They will demonstrate their knowledge through their choice of an advertisement (poster), news broadcast, jingle/rap, or a tv commercial.
Included in this project:
Entry document from CDC
Project description with 5 themes of geography
Frayer model worksheets
Final location worksheet
Persuasive essay worksheet
Group and self-evaluation form
Project duration mostly depends on how much time you want to give your students for research.
