DIY Zombie- Apocalyptic Summer Learning Camp, Phase I, part A: Zombie Migrations

Although I am referring to the antagonists of this scenario's story "zombies", we are actually going to do some sort of vampire-zombie hybrid. You may use zombies, vampires or any creature you wish. The only requirement for this story is that they be humanoid because much of the science part of this camp revolves around human mutations.

The Story Unfolds

The story of the invasion practically writes itself as your students become involved in the solving of these puzzles we have put forth to them. All you have to do, as the leader of the scenario, is guide them if they get off track and paint a picture of the scenario as they need it with descriptive events.

Zombies Appear: Data of migrations

In the initial phase, students become aware of the zombie attack. I suggest that your students go through through the WebQuest Zombie Apocalypse-Survival Plan. Have your student complete one step during this session. (Steps 2-3 during phase II and steps 4-6 during phase III.)

Alternatively you could use the activity at Will YOU be safe when zombies attack? Interactive map reveals how the undead could spread across the US.
activity on the spread of a contagion, The Plague Spreads
If you have high school students doing this you, could complete some activities on Exponential Growth and Decay. Another lesson, which looks simpler, can be found here at The Enlightened Elephant. For younger students, you can complete the activity at Maximizing Learning, or the activity we did when we studied the Middle Ages, The Plague Spreads.

  1. I've got a couple of new tabs open to see some of the ideas you've mentioned.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
