Can geography save your life in case of, say, a zombie apocalypse? Understanding the push and pull factors that create geographic movement — or how people, resources, and even ideas travel — might help you determine the location that’s best for survival. David Hunter playfully analyzes the geography skills that you’d need to escape the zombies.
Learning Geography Skills Through A Zombie Apocalypse
This project began on KickStarter and is design as a full middle school geography curriculum taught in the context of a zombie apocalypse. This project is part text book, part teaching plans, part role playing simulation – all innovative, creative, and engaging learning. With the book and learning materials that are created from this project, teachers and students will be able to learn real world geographic concepts by learning and applying their knowledge to survive in a zombie apocalypse.
The purpose for this project is simple: create lessons that engage learners and build memorable experiences for their learning to take place, while empowering teachers to tap into student engagement.
