Part 1: Pre-Outbreak PlanningProject 01: Mapping Pre-Outbreak Data: In this project, students learn to create maps with all the important map elements (direction, key and legend, labels, grid system and index) as well as how to display data with different maps. They will create their own map showing the movement of zombies with data provided.
Project 02: Creating Regions: After creating a map, students learn about regions and how places are divided into regions. They must split different areas into different regions to warn about the zombies.
Part 2: Surviving the OutbreakProject 03: Mental Mapping: Students learn about mental maps and create a mental map (drawn from memory) of their local neighborhood, showing where they would try to get supplies, and where they would avoid. They also learn skills to practice mental mapping the world and why having a quality mental map is important.
Part 3: Finding a Place to SettleProject 04: Physical Characteristics: Students learn about physical systems (landforms and climate) and decide where they want to try and settle. They will research physical landforms, and then decide which places have the best physical landforms for their survival settlement.
Project 05: Resources: Students learn about resources. They research the resources of the locations they decided upon in project 4.
Project 06: Movement: Students learn about movement. They research migration and explain the areas that people will be moving through. They also identify where zombies will tend to move. Students use this research to help them decide whether they want to settle where people will find them in order to recruit more people, or if they want to stay off of migration paths to avoid people finding them.
Part 4: Building a CommunityProject 07: Settlements: Students analyze different maps “drawn” by different characters. Through looking at these maps, the student needs to identify what is important to each character.
Project 08: Students develop a report on the impacts of the new settlement. They’ll analyze the long distance impacts as well as both positive and negative human impacts.
Part 5: Planning for the FutureProject 09: Predictions: When we plan for the future we can learn from the past. The projects within Project 09 are focused around trying to predict the problems or opportunities that our settlements might face. There are 3 mini projects within this unit.
- Project 09A – Ecosystems – Investigating the change in ecosystems.
- Project 09B – Population – Understanding the changes in populations.
- Project 09C – Past – Learning from the past to predict the future.
Students learn how the zombie outbreak affected ecosystems, how the outbreak changed populations, and how past events can inform our future plans.
Project 10: Planning and Culture: Planning plays a big role in dealing with geographic issues. The world operates in complex ways, before and after the zombie outbreak. Planning is required in order to keep humans and the environment working together. These plans will help make sure that our survival settlements last well into the future and help to rebuild our society.
There are 2 mini projects within this unit.
- Project 10A – Culture – Planning how to make sure all cultures survive.
- Project 10B – Planning – Preparing for the long rebuild of society.
Students will learn how to preserve various cultures in your settlement and decide on the issues that will need to be planned for the next 30 years.
