PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Why learn geography when you can save the world from a zombie apocalypse?

In this PBL unit, students will learn about different types of maps through analyzing data and maps of the Eastern Hemisphere. Students will then apply their geographic knowledge to create six different types of maps that depict the geographically-altered, post-apocalyptic world. After analyzing their maps, students write a report recommending where survivors should re-settle the human race.

Although this unit is aligned to the Michigan social studies GLCES for 7th grade, your district's curriculum can be easily used!

This PBL unit is NOT a substitution for your geography curriculum; instead, it is a supplemental resource that frames content in a way is fun, engaging, and that promotes critical thinking. Think of your existing curriculum as the teaching resources and this resources as the student application of learning.

This unit suggests using technology resources such as Google Earth, the Internet, and JotForm on Google Drive. However, these resources are NOT mandatory. Print resources like atlases, textbooks, and articles can be used with great success!
