Just when you thought things couldn't get any crazier...
If you teach information technology, journalism, business or math, have we got some great lessons for you. Explore topics timely issues such as media credibility, marketing...and of course, designing a survival structure!
The lessons in this project can be taught together, individually, or in the series of 4 for each subject.
Information Tech/Media Design: This is a series of 4 lessons that explore various concepts related to disaster survival. Lessons will include the learning what voice-over technology is, the importance of authentic media credibility, exploring the possibilities of careers that will “survive” a zombie apocalypse, and creating a digital poster to promote their surviving career.
Business Technology: Modeling and marketing a survival structure: This is a series 4 business and finance lessons in which students will create a marketing plan, a sales presentation selling your zombie structure, a personal budget for zombie survival, and creating a 3D image of the zombie structure.
Math: Specifications and design of a survival structure: This is a series of four math lessons that explore various concepts related to disaster survival. The initial lesson will discuss exponential growth using a "zombie virus" as an example, leading students to consider how to survive a zombie apocalypse. In subsequent lessons students will use triangulation to determine how far away an object (zombie) is, determine volume and surface area of 3D structures and design a personal "survival" structure. In the final lesson students will learn how scale factor effects surface area and volume and draw a scale model of the structure they previously designed.
